Its like fishing.Fishing in reverse, said Pamela. Sky fishing.What do you fish for in the air? asked Honor.Pamela and Will started laughing. Oh, planets, said Will. The occasional comet. An asteroid or two.Honor held one kite string, and Will held the other. Pamela held Quintilian. On those afternoons, four did not seem like the wrong number for a family. Four seemed just right." - Author: Allegra Goodman
