This blue marble

– and yet it spins

Takeoff

Leave a comment

Helsinkiairport-1Another early morning takeoff. Cannot remember where I was going. Perhaps Stockholm. Helsinki airport bathed in the morning sunlight and mist lay over the fields. I cannot remember what I was thinking. Probably nothing. Probably something. But I probably was not thinking that “this is a beautiful moment and it will never, ever, return again. Because one second later, the world will have shifted, if ever so slightly.”

Live today. I probably wasn’t. My loss.

(Helsinki, Finland; October 2015)
