The moon was out!  I started the coffee, grabbed my gear, and went into back yard.  Just as I opened the blinds I saw a shooting star jet across the sky next to the full moon and a flock of doves took to flight (Okay the doves may not have happened, but the shooting star really did!).  It was meant to be.
