32,000 feet

I am struck with what an awe-inspiring thing it is that I got to witness a beautiful and perfect pink sunset over the ocean from a view that in the history of humanity very few people have had the chance to see. I was mesmerized tonight as I watched, trying to experience it all the more for the millions of people who got to the earth too early to experience such a thing for themselves. They paved the way for us to reach such heights and I am thankful for all those first dreamers who each stood on their predecessor's shoulders until finally they reached the sky...and so did I.

  1. I saw one too! Just as I was arriving in ATL :). Aside from the sherpas on Mt Everest... very few have gotten to look down to a sunrise
