My friends and I tried to contain our jackal grins. At first embarrassed by the giddy excitement spreading across our surface like spilled milk, but discovering the mess was bigger than the container of our heads. A long pause of appreciation for everything in front of us left us still. We gazed long at the wonders surrounding. But soon we found we had to share it, our reverent appreciation.
My head moved up and down the tall structures, the flashing lights, in a bobbing bow of worship until finally catching my friend’s eye. Our eyes met and we saw our own delight reflected in each other’s eyes. I knew we shared an equal devotion. Nothing had impressed us so completely before.
