Our daughter had wanted to pet a dog she spotted earlier and I talked to the dog's owner, a friendly woman who had lived in her house on the beach for over 40 years (she bought it for $36,000 in 1968!).
We were talking about possessions and how little they mean - although not always in Malibu. (She said her books were the things she cared about most.)
The beauty of the sunset underlined the fact that it's the moment that counts, and whom you are sharing it with. Nothing else can come close.
