Lately, the highlights of my days - my nights, I mean, are the short walks to the dumpster to take my trash out. As I walk, I stare up at the stars. It's really clear out. The stars are so bright. I feel connected with the whole universe and it gives me great perspective.
I read a couple of articles about the solar system around Epsilon Eridani. Supposedly it's pretty similar to our solar system. You know what I'm going to say next, right? Of course: Maybe there's some guy on a planet in the Epsilon Eridani solar system taking his trash out across the parking lot looking up at his skies, looking right at me as I take out my trash, looking right at him.
