The view from an airplane window always captures my imagination. And this week, as I fly from coast to coast, I'll have plenty of time to enjoy the view. Watching the geography of the central plains evolve into the Rocky Mountains, I set down on the edge of the Pacific Ocean in California. Soon I sling-shot east across the country to teach for a week in the warmth of South Carolina.
As I fly, I daydream about the cities, farms, rivers, and people below. Who lives a the end of those meandering roads? Is that a lake or a plateau? What a pretty planet!
