Jupiter Has Sixty-One Moons

There is no difference between writing down what you hear and writing
down what you wish you heard.

On Jupiter there are 61 colors, one for each moon. Painting students
make moon-studies in their first color lessons.

It's hard to see when it is dark, as it is for hours each day. Painters
are taught to paint blindfolded. Talented colorists show themselves
during this exercise.

When they do, they are taken away, as they suffer from a disease that
only light can cure.
