A cheering letter from home when rations are short, the top sergeant is in a bad mood, and the country you're in is far away and has a bad climate. Helping a baby learn to walk by letting it hold on to your fingers. The sun reflected back fromathousand- . windowed'' skyscraper, turning It into a .. tower ot dazzling light. Lying on a beach in August and feeling plucked at by tentacles of foam and surf. The taste of sardines and crackers when you're really starved. Listening to the woes of a millionaire and discovering it is really true that money alone can't always buy happiness. The thrill of being able to read all by yourself the story of Jack, the beanstalk and the giant. The joy of having the prettiest girl in the First Grade stick her tongue out at you during recess, but then relenting and letting you carry her books home after school let out. Carving her initials on a tree so deep in the woods that you are sure no one else will ever see it and guess your secret passion. When you go back years later, you find that the letters are undecipherable and the tree is only 25 feet from a main highway.
