You nailed that one, Socrates!
I’m certainly no philosopher (and I’m lousy with a hammer), but wrapped in my cramped, capricious cocoon with a fresh window on my world, I am always amazed at the ordinary now rendered so extraordinary.
My heart now knows what my head seemed unable to divine as a mere mortal firmly planted on the ground. How small my world, how vast and beautiful this planet Earth.
Above the din of humanity, I suddenly feel suspended in time; hardly an impossibility given the seemingly impossible, gravity-defying feat responsible for hefting a thousand-ton mass of metal and machination into the sky.
Looking down on planet Earth from my lofty perch, I now know in my head and my heart I am truly blessed to be part of all the mystery and the magic.
