The Dazzle of the Day
When friends describe space travel as their ultimate dream, I wonder about what specifically they hope to find up there. For Molly Gloss, outer space is just another staging ground for the constants of human experience: families growing, contracting, colliding; loved ones departing; sharing meals; questioning whether to stay or go... If we ever decide go looking for something better, how long will the view's novelty last? How long until we cover the windows to forget how far we are from home?
