Being able to watch a sun set
To Manu’s post, which says:
Sometimes a beautiful sunset on a lake is all it takes to be happy.
The timing of his post resonated well with me. Even as I’m working on an article that explores the possibility of life on starless worlds, I can’t help but wonder about the incredible views they would miss. The serenity of sunsets and sunrises that our Earth and solar system are capable of producing really does make me happy.
I’m fully aware I’m coming across as anthropocentric here but I’m a human after all.
