An invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet, regardless of time, place, or circumstances. The thread may stretch or tangle but will never break.
A ‘Ring of Fire’ solar eclipse is a rare phenomenon that occurs when the moon’s orbit is at its apogee: the part of its orbit farthest away from the Earth. Because the moon is so far away, it seems smaller than normal to the human eye. The result is that the moon doesn’t entirely block out our view of the sun, but leaves an “annulus,” or ring of sunlight glowing around it. Hence the term “annular” eclipse rather than a “total” eclipse.
“In five days I’ll be ninety-six years old. I never smoked, and I never had any stress. I was dumb and worked low-level jobs with no responsibility. I worked until I was eighty-four, with two jobs. I worked at an office until five o’clock, and then I went to work as a waitress—it was a happy job, feeding people. Then you take your uniform off, and your job is done. But somebody has to do the stressful jobs, too.”
“Do you have any regrets?”
“Oh, I’ve made lots of mistakes.”
“With education and jobs?”
“No, no. With people. And that hurts the most—the things you’ve said to people.”

hannah: Surface of Mars, photographed by Mars Express, 25th November 2005.
Image runs from 32°S 201°E about 710 km due south across the Terra Sirenum highlands to 44°S 201°E. The Sirenum Fossae run across the top of the 2nd image. The 5th and 6th images show a central section of the 300 km-wide Newton Crater, including what looks like part of the central peak complex (notice dunes, dark blue, on the left hand side).
Composite of 3 visible light images for colour, and one monochrome image for detail. Colour balance is not naturalistic.

So when people leave, I’ve learned the secret: let them. Because, most of the time, they have to.
Let them walk away and go places. Let them have adventures in the wild without you. Let them travel the world and explore life beyond a horizon that you exist in. And know, deep down, that heroes aren’t qualified by their capacity to stay but by their decision to return.
