Sunday Skies

 

Continuing a little Sunday Skies series...

Flying from London to Manchester

the sky outside my window continued

to change in color and intensitiy

minute by minute.

 

 

“That's the thing about flying:

You could talk to someone for hours and never even know his name,

share your deepest secrets and then never see them again.”

~Jennifer E. Smith, The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight

 

(I sat next to an Englishman who had been in Phoenix

attending a conference on Nuclear Waste Storage)

C'est toujours aussi beau. Les reflets du soleil sur cette mer de nuages sont magnifiques.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: So true, Martine - the view from above is astounding!

Such a beautiful view. I think I can even see the slight discolourations caused by the plexiglass.

I guess if the nuclear waste storage does not go well, this will be the only views we'll have.. well, assuming that there is anyone left wink A cheery thought for a Sunday morning smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Pretty, isn't it!!
Yes, Alan! Thanks for that... smile

What a great experience - did you arrive in the morning at Heathrow?
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It was so beautiful! I landed at Heathrow 3:30pm... My flight from Heathrow to Manchester was 6:30 - 7:30pm. So this was a sunset. I prefer to leave Phoenix in the evening so I can sleep most of the flight as per my usual sleep cycle.
It looks like the sea ahead. My son had on FB this week that a man fell asleep on his shoulder for 45 min. on his flight from Seattle. He said he didn't mind that much and the embarrassment of the man when he woke up was worth everything.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It does!
That's so funny! I don't know if you know of the satirist David Sedaris... He writes about real events that have happened to him and twists these mortifying situations into sheer comedy. He did a bit on a flight he was on, and he sneezed... the lozenge he'd been sucking on shot out of him mouth, ricocheted off of his up right tray table and landed in the lap of the woman sleeping next to him... smile
You must have taken quite a few of these on this flight Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh I did, Brian! The sky was constantly changing!
the sun looks like a golden teardrop Elizabeth...

so what did you learn about the storage of nuclear waste during your flight....petersmile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Isn't it lovely?!
Not much, actually... I think he didn't really want to go into it!
