Solace in the Face of the Storm

Sunset Storms over Tennessee-9428

The hours of monotony, the hectic pace of airport traffic, the security lines, the maintenance delays, the turbulence, the crackle of radios, and the sense-numbing roar of air as the aircraft cuts through the sky all consume space in our minds and our senses…But for a moment (truly only for a moment, so we must pay attention), everything stops. Rising vapor, rumbling air, and transient light all seem to freeze and in that moment we find warmth and solace in the face of a storm and all of our concerns and distractions evaporate into the stratosphere…and then the light vanishes leaving space for whatever may come next.
