Stairway to heaven

I saw a stairway dangling in the sky above my head this morning. At first I didn't know what it was: it looked like just another big chunk of steel being lifted up to the dome of the emerging campus library, but then I remembered that the last bit of steel supporting the dome was installed last week with great hooplah and hurrah.

I saw it first from blocks away from campus, the huge hunk of something dangling from a towering crane, and it was only as I got closer that I recognized it as something I really don't expect to see high above my head: a stairway. We're now one step closer to the finished library--but that first step is kind of high!
