In Florida now, and the weather's so cool and rainy - it feels like I haven't left Bangalore! It feels good to be back in the US - vast spaces, clean roads, clean air, nice looking people, nice food!
I observed that many sight-impaired employees work in my office here. And they have guide dogs. Today, as one such employee walked into the elevator with her big black guide dog, my colleague exclaimed: "You have a beautiful dog!"
"Oh he is beautiful, thank you", she replied. "Did you hear that - you're so beautiful!" she told her dog, bending to stroke him. "What's his name?", I asked. "Night", she replied.
As I smilingly pondered over the choice of name for a jet black dog leading a visually impaired person, she heartily added, "He's my night in shining fur!"
