I was expecting shiny knees
I would have loved to put up that photo. But I didn’t think it was right to publish the photo of someone who’s probably still alive without her permission, and I don’t know how to contact her.
Hope you enjoyed the story anyway!
What an absolutely magnificent story!!! Thank you so much for telling it David!
Thank you so much, Sagan!
From looking for aliens to feeling like one… and in the end, not. Gorgeous story.
But on a less symbolic note, I lived the UFO furore and this brought back so many memories. My own, otherwise highly pragmatic, folks were convinced aliens visited us and my father, a medical professional, took soil samples from mysterious burned circles in rural Argentina to present to an eminent UFOlogist. Good times.
Thank you, David!
And thank *you* for your comment, Violeta!
