Longing for Gravity

by linzcaryl

Today’s Daily Prompt: You are on a mission to Mars. Because of the length of of the journey, you will never be able to return to Earth. What about our blue planet will you miss the most?

Sure, it would be fascinating to get a glimpse of Mars for a day. But Earth, there’s nothing quite like it. The ability to be in two places at once in North Carolina and Virginia, the idea of traveling via plane, car, boat or train, exploring vast landscapes that make you feel like anything’s possible.

But mostly, it’s the people, the possibility for travel and finding inspiration in something read, seen and heard, that I’ll miss. People give you strength, hope and allow you to see things in a different light. Travelling gives you thrill and the ability to marvel. And I doubt, the Red Planet will ever have anything that can compare.
