On my way to visit my sister & brother in New Mexico I flew over salt lake city. It was one of the roughest, frightening flights I'd been on because of the wind. It was so unnerving that when we landed all the passengers clapped in both relief & thankfulness. haha

As we were getting whipped about in the air and I was clinging to both my chair AND my peace, I was in awe of the glorious view below. It was so breathtaking. Somehow being able to see the ground made the air seem less frightening. We were just below the moody dark clouds but could see the vast lake and the piercing golden light reflected on the water and city below that caught the trails of light. There was such a mixture of emotion for me... but it was an awe inspiring moment too... I was still clearly not in control of my circumstances... but in control of my inner state... and my ability to be thankful and awed even in my moment of uncertainty or fear. So this sketch is a fuzzy reflection of the memory.
