"Picard opened his eyes again, and was surprised to find that the starlit vista above Château Picard had been replaced by a sky of brilliant blue. He was further surprised to realize the figure before him calling his name was not his father or brother, but his wife. Beverly Crusher smiled down at him, standing so that her shadow fell over him, shading his eyes from the brightness of midday. With the sun brightness of midday. With the sun at her back, she appeared as a classical angel, surrounded by an ephemeral light, her long red tresses like flames as loose strands flew in the breeze. She had no wings, of course, and her rounded, pregnant stomach was also at odds with the traditional depiction of asexual divine messengers, but as far as Jean-Luc Picard was concerned, she was most definitely a heavenly being."

Once upon a time, I was babysitting and I forgot that wind exists and left a door open but not unlocked. Then wind happened and locked myself and my charge out of the house. (We just played outside for two hours until Mom came back, and all was fine, but just a reminder that we all struggle with being responsible adults at times.)
Non-Trek PSA: Muppets Most Wanted is out in the US today. I saw it last night and definitely recommend.
