Speechless Sunday - Sunset from Above

Flying home from visiting Ray is always a little sad. I always have a busy schedule to look forward to during the day but, it doesn't keep me from worrying about my hubby and being anxious for his return home. Each flight is typically super early morning to head out to Denver or evening/night flights going home. That gives me more time with him and then I deal with the sleep later!

 

Sunset from Above

 

The flight last night departed right at sunset and the view from above was incredibly striking - the photo doesn't really do it justice!

 

What you can't tell from the shot is the dark, dark cloud cover from which you could see the rain exploding! I could not get a picture of that to save my soul but, let me just say the flight was THE most turbulent one I have ever been on. What made it worse was there was a woman on my row who kept squealing! Seriously, if felt like the airplane was going to be torn to shreds - I understood her angst but, boy, didn't love hearing her squeals!

Morning Debe.

My wife doesn't do turbulence, lots of barf bags.  Doesn't bother me at all.

Good morning, Debe Maxwell, CRS I remember being on one flight where that plane was shivering in the sky for a long time!!  then we'd drop fast...and one woman screamed.... and in unison, many screamed....OMG.... I'll never forget it...because of the screams....

James Dray, what is funny is I was in the coffee shop at the airport and this group who had evidently just landed, was talking about how horrible the flight had been and how many people were sick. I was thinking, "Thank God I wasn't on that flight!"

During the turbulence on my flight and listening to the woman's squeals, I kept thinking of that conversation I had overheard and wished I hadn't thought what I thought about it! I felt I had jinxed myself! LOL

YES! The quick drop and the plane shivering were quite alarming, Barbara Todaro! I heard the OMGs but, they weren't screaming it, THANK GOD. I will admit to saying it silently to myself a few times though!

Hi Debe- glad I had my sunglasses on so you wouldn't recognize me on the plane! LOL- Despite what you said, the photo is beautiful so I can only imagine what the sky was like in real life. You and Ray are in my thoughts.

Yes, it is, Krystin Mitchell, CPA CFE - I was totally not expecting it - even though I heard people talking at the airport about turbulence prior to my take-off! DUH! LOL

Yes, great news about hubby - it's been a long-time coming!

Oh, you are so funny, Kathy Streib - had I known it was you, I would have been over there dishing out Bloody Marys to you! LOL 

It really was a sight to see - I think it was a gift in exchange for all of the angst caused by the turbulence! 😉

Hello Debe - your photo and description brought me to thinking of "doing justice" as you reference in your post.  It takes a special commitment to make the kind of magic you and Ray share.  Here's to a full recovery and to sunrises/sunsets that help frame our days.

There is no question that flying often offers up some amazing perspectives of clouds, sunrises and sunsets.

Thank you Dorie Dillard CRS GRI ABR! It really is the best news. He won't be fully 'healed' but, will be taking it easy for the next 3 months. We're good with doing a little (or a LOT of) care at home just to get him back home!

Oh, I love your kind words, Michael Jacobs! I am blessed beyond words and don't know what I ever did to deserve 24+ years of 'magic' and having such an amazing soul mate. Believe me, I don't take it for granted either - and never will!

Myrl Jeffcoat, while I enjoy flying to exciting destinations and I have enjoyed visiting my husband each and every time I've flown there, I have realized that my friends who have traveling jobs that have always seemed glamorous to me, can keep those jobs! I don't care how much they pay, flying alone is not something I would want to do every week of my life.

I do always get a window seat when I fly - I LOVE that view from above!
