Mali having a snack at the Starfest star party near Mount Forest Ontario August 2000. This was Mali’s first star party. She gamely stayed up until 1:00 am and toured the telescope grounds looking through scopes. She was thrilled with the view of Saturn. There’s nothing like seeing these things with your own eyes. Unlike most star partiers she pooped out shortly afterward and retired to our tent. Mali has always packed her own snacks. Even now whenever we toddle off for a hike or drive she will orchestrate Mali approved organic sandwiches. In almost all cases her snacks are far superior to anything you’re likely to find in roadside restaurants.
