Falling in Love

When the project you're working on starts to click, it's a bit like falling in love. The world conspires to bring you bounty - ideas, tangents, information - all of it connected somehow to the thing you're working on, and every reinforcement serves as further evidence of the rightness of your path.

This morning, I'm thinking about giving my current project a binary star system to make the weather work correctly, and this afternoon I hear from a co-worker about the plan to send robots to Alpha Centauri to study the binary system there. This, of course, sends me to the Wikipedia page, where I discover artists' renderings of the way they think the sky will look on a planet with two suns, and which gets me thinking about what an equinox on a planet with two suns would even look like.
