Red Blood, Red Sky
Written by David Altman. Editor and Chief Mars office of the Solar Observer News service, Utopia Dome, Musk City
Time has Changed my View of the Red Planet. Today As Editor and Chief of the Utopia Office of the Solar Observer News service, I have come to find the Harsh red sands that still find there way into the Domes as a comfort.
When I return to Earth I feel the compulsive need to carry a vial of that iron Impregnated sand in the breast pocket of my suit. Well my Colleagues Wear their dress shoes I find my comfort in the heavy Soled rough terrain Boots of my red planet home. When they complain about the cold, I find myself sweltering. I am no longer used to the weight of a full G. My now fifty year old frame having long ago become used to only tipping the scales at 35 kilograms. Today I proudly Call myself Martian... That was not always the case.&
