That cold lonely feeling…

A trans-Atlantic flight form Seattle to Amsterdam can sometime be subject of surreal experiences. I took this picture from my plane window as we flew over the vast, icy expanse of Greenland.

Despite being with hundreds other passengers, a strange feeling of melancholic loneliness descends on me; as if the barren cold stretch was not outside, but somewhere deep within my heart. The emotions were heightened this time as I looked outside at the diminutiveness of the plane’s right engine; its imposing mechanics rendered inconsequentially insignificant by the endless, white consistence of land below. It’s a strange detached feeling of nothingness; the chaste monochromatic beauty of the landscape compounds it.
