Ascend

I have a head for heights it’s true, but no stomach for the depths. Strange then to have plumbed so many.

Jeanette Winterson, Written on the Body

Shot from the window of a Boeing 777 traversing the Sahara, near Tassili n’Ajjer, Algeria, en route from Abuja to London last week.

Grounded now for two or three weeks for some long overdue surgery, painful but a relief to be out of the air for a while!

Created with iPhone 6S for WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge, Ascend.

Death, therefore, the most awful of evils, is nothing to us, seeing that, when we are, death is not come, and, when death is come, we are not.
– Epicurus

we chase it
for eternity
yet, what do we lose

in our (endless)

chase
for, that
serene

(moment)

and
can
we find
it
before that
door

closes?
