Flying west today, I got an eyeful of the vast prairie and desert landscape. From high above in the plane, many of the terrain’s features do look like the bottom of the ocean. Ponds and small lakes glittered in the late afternoon sun, sprinkled across the land like diamonds on the jeweler’s mat. There were tall stacks of clouds, impossibly bright and dense, both chunky and fluffy at the same time, and in distinct contrast to the even horizontal bands of grey on the horizon. The scenery provided a calming backdrop while I worked hard on my knitting therapy routine.
