In as few as six minutes, light can travel to us all the way from Mars. Once inside our minds, these signals travel at another velocity, connecting and bridging mental distances of equal chasm. Once a year, at closest approach, we are as few as only Thirty (Half-Dozen) Seconds To Mars.
Perhaps something like Mars — an impossible outland — draws nearer than you think. But perhaps even through the mental telescope, whatever the next destination is, the resolution is fuzzy, the distance from which you must drop through a dusty abyss and vast inked velvet without horizon, someday you will drive there.
