  •  When my wife and I go out to a restaurant, the dinner always seems special. A table for two, whether you’re a couple or just a couple of old friends, always seems like a special occasion. Unfortunately, when that table for two is at home, the occasion isn’t regarded with the same kind of reverence.

  •  I cannot recall where I read this message: “The important thing about stars is not the naming, but the noticing.” I only know the statement gave me great comfort. I have often been dismayed over my inability to remember “star facts” gleaned in grammar school. Those were the days when I spent time craning my neck to spot Pleiades, Cassiopeia and Orion and the Dippers, big and small, in the darkened sky over our backyard. I could name them then...I am unable now. However, I suspect I am more prone to noticing them at this stage of my life.
