My Favorite Martian

The desktop on my computer at work has the panoramic display of the surface of Mars taken by the Spirit probe that landed there over the weekend. It shows an empty, deserted plain, dotted with rocks, that extends to an empty horizon. I sit and look at it and think of some strange wind blowing dust across those rocks under that familiar yet alien sun and I find comfort in it.

Don’t ask me how.
