I am on a mission to Mars and asked “What will I miss most about Earth?”
I will miss my family and friends. Even though I know in my mind I will make new friends and perhaps marry some day, the old still clings to me.
I will miss the browns and greens of the earth and the blue of the sky and the white puffy clouds and being able to go outside without a space suit and breath deeply into the cool clear air.
I will miss knowing I am on a pretty blue orb floating through the universe. Lost to me now forever, except through a telescope and my dreams.
