So I was chopping my cucumbers (the last ones left on this trip to Proxima Centauri B) when I inadvertently sliced into my thumb.
Fortunately it did not go deeper and in time it will heal okay.
I am now closer to Proxima Centauri B than I am to Earth, but still, the little red sun is barely a smudge in the distance. The two Alpha's are starting to brighten, however. Soon I'll need to put my sunglasses on.
