I write this from 30,000+ feet above the Earth. It’s kinda neat and helps the nearly six hour flight go more quickly. Interestingly enough, the flight is completely sold out. I sit way at the back, surrounded by a class of 8th graders obviously on some great adventure or returning from one. Although the flight has had its bumpy moments it is serene right now.
I look out over the vast white snow clouds as the morning sun bounces off them. The sky is a deep ocean blue, beckoning into the beyond. As much as travel can be annoying at times it is moments of this bliss that I do appreciate this giant marble of ours.
