I took this picture just before dawn in 1990, in the atrium of my old house in MRC Nagar. I saw the slice of blue in a gap in the parapet around the first floor of the atrium, and the shadowed angles which formed an L. I had to lie on the floor on my stomach, and twist my body to get the exact vantage that I needed.

My late, foolish but loving dog, Sheru, flopped down beside me for moral support. No one else was awake but us. That sliver of celestial blue, and the memory of that morning with my dog, gives me a moment of happiness.
