Above it all, the jet plane breaking though the clouds for a glimpse of the Infinite, leaving Earth’s troubles for a few moments.
We passengers in this metal tube, our fragile feet ten kilometres above the earth, still bound by Earth’s gravity.
Some scared, some bored or angry but so few impressed with the wonder of air flight.
This is here, this is now, whatever we do is for us.
My photo shows the view as the aircraft is breaking through the cloud layer and into the stratosphere at about 32,000 feet, this was from BA0366 en route from London Heathrow to Marseille Provence airport.
