A little less conversation, a little more (footwear log) action
Gave myself a horrid fright when I opened the email with this photo attached, as a huge file, because I was not expecting the extreme close-up of leg freckles which ensued. Although one patch of freckles on my right shin looks exactly like the Trappist One system: seven dots in close orbit around a salmon-pink dwarf. I am considering examining my other freckle constellations for clues about how other systems that might have life on them might look. Could save the searchers decades. Only thirty-nine light years away...so very, very, very thrilling.
These shoes might be the last survivors of the Campers phase to still be alive and in rotation. I have a feeling there is a reader out there who also has a pair. What has kept them intact is the fact that they are one size too small, and I only wear them when it's been long enough since the last time I wore them that I have forgotten the pain.
