From the early part of January, 2014:
Believe it or not,
there are moments when you are flying
that the fact that you are in a plane tens of thousands of feet above land with absolutely no control
isn’t the only thing you are thinking of.
There are moments that make it
A L L
worth it. Here are some of those moments:
Lift off happened early in the morning, but not quite early enough to catch the sunrise like I had hoped! Still one of my favorite pictures!
The cloud cover tried really hard to hide the mountains from me…. but I was determined!!
At this point in the flight the turbulence was sooooo bad, I kept revolving between two thoughts, the first:
“OMG. If this plane goes down – it will be
ALL MY FAULT.
I’m the one who just HAD to see the effin’ mountains!”
“Next time – my carry on is going to consist of a parachute.”
Okay, so when I walk into a used bookstore, awe – who am I kidding – when I see a used bookstore I get really excited. I bet that’s what happens to a geologist when they fly and look down to see tributaries and… stuff.
To me – it provided a beautiful distraction from the whole “no control” thing!
Needless to say I was very happy to be home!
I was so happy in fact that I decided I needed to bake:
Then the storms hit – first snow:
Then the effin’ cold.
I am pretty certain at one point I felt the road shiver.
It all kind of made me want to move.
But then again it would be sooooo costly to move all those I love to Hawaii.
Until next time,
