In June of 2000 the Eiffel Tower was lit to display the year. Perhaps it is always lit up with the year, but this was Y2K, the year of the new millennium, and it seemed rather amazing to be at the cusp of such a moment in time. Now it is June of 2010 and we are moving steadily through the 21st century. I remember reading the Sunday newspaper on New Year's Day of 1950 and feeling amazed to be at the midpoint of the 20th century. But then I was 9 and amazed by a lot of things. I am grateful to say that at 69 I am still capable of being amazed.
