Do you remember that day in 1972 when the San Francisco skyline changed forever (so to speak) when the Transamerica Pyramid was completed?
They say that a sense of serene fulfillment grabbed the hearts of everyone and that for a day, a smile was the expression that everyone wore on their faces. These combined together into a gigantic smile that rose up for just a moment to the very top of the skyscraper's pinnacle. It was one of those warm evenings when everyone feels at peace with oneself and the universe and forgetful of every day's toiling.
No pictures were taken, no article was written on the press, no governmental statement was issued.At the end of the day, what was left was a mere feeling, a subdued sensation of calm and hope and, deep within the hearts of those who witnessed the event, the certainty that the impossible, no matter how unbelievable that may be, is just a few millimeters away from common sense.
