The sky was amazingly clear and we watched falling stars for hours. Then, shortly before dawn, we saw a brilliant light beam down and flash us. It left us breathless; we were so stunned. If we had been there separately, none of us would have believed the others, but we each nodded and agreed that, yes, we had just witnessed what the other two had seen. I think that would be a good start to a book. What was that light we saw in the desert?(less)

Celeste Very much, thanks. Saw Spamalot and breakfasted with fruit bats, orangutans and breakfast cereals. There was much rejoicing.
