"Anything will give up its secrets if you love it enough. Not only have I found that when I talk to the little flower or to the little peanut they will give up their secrets, but I have found that when I silently commune with people they give up their secrets also - if you love them enough."

I got a brochure for the largest planetarium in Texas, near Corsicana. Corsicana is where the Main Street Bakery churns out holiday fruitcakes, shipped all over the world, which nobody eats. I would offer to ship each of you one, but I am a few pictures and a few letters behind from past offers.

I love laser shows at planetarium, where the bunny image hops to "run, rabbit, run" and all that, so long as no Alan Parsons Project is involved. I love to sit back and watch the laser light dance, for no reason other than to make me and others happy.

Ever look at a nebula through a small telescope? Let's say M42, up in Orion--it's just so mysterious and yet accessible, a smudge to the naked eye, a whirling cloud through a reflector. Look at the seven sisters, only there are not seven, there are thousands, a cluster of stars.

I wish sometimes I could look into people better, and see what there is to see. I wonder if it's a trick of the light, or a need to focus.
