I'd venture that it takes an Australian to complain that the sky in
Canada isn't big enough.
You must have to deal with too many Texans.
It isn't the size... it's the shape! The stars were all wrong.
.... and the colour! And the light...
As someone who lived for a long period of time in a different world
I found the austral sky to be a lovely shade of blue which just
sticks to your soul.
First thing that struck me was the light and the colour! I came off
the plane, at 5 am in the morning and it just stuck to me. Lovely!
(And there was water running along the ground, which is unnatural.)Alas, that *is* also true.
I have seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire
off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark
near the Tannhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time,
like tears in rain. Time to die.
