One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I was conceived and born onto a planet with oceans, mountains, volcanos, forests, lakes and rivers, as well as countless millions of microbes, plants, animals and fungi on it. It was about 5 billion years old, in an unimaginably vast and expanding universe. There were loads of these fascinating hairless monkeys too. Some of them made art, music, books, telescopes and loads of other amazing stuff, they had been walking around and talking for about 5500000 years, but they couldn't really remember the first 5496000 years even though they had been making stuff like this: www.planetfusion.co.uk/~pignut/goddess.jpg.
