Up There

Up There | Wenatchee, WA | September 2019

At ground level | I often look up and am surprised (yet again) that airplanes can fly. It’s a miracle I take for granted nearly everyday. Heavier than air with no-flap wings, planes skim the skies almost undetected. Well, except that their hushed whoosh from 30,000 feet settles on earthbound observers like a whisper. Explain again, please: How in the world can such huge objects soar?
