Earth Surface_3

While being on a long flight from Beijing to US over Russia and North Pole, most people were sleeping already. I happened to look out the plane window. I was immediately captivated by the earth topography. I was at awe of how beautiful our earth is. I wrote down then: "30,000 feet above the land of Siberia. The endless shapes and forms are mesmerizing! It is our earth! Not made by man, not made for man. We are all accidental existence. Take only what we need and leave the rest of the earth to the earth." I had never seen anything like it.
