It’s neat when you look out and everything’s gone pink and orange, a soft light that makes you feel like you’re living inside a neon tube for a minute. And through little holes are patches of blue sky that look ever so much more blue in contrast. Off in the distance, through some of those holes of blue, you can see brilliant, white thunderheads over the mountains in the east, still brightly lit by the setting sun.
Cool planet. As much as I might like to leave and explore elsewhere, there are some pretty special things that we shouldn’t take for granted while we’re here.
