Above it All

We seem likely to lose power any moment now-- the lights come and go and my surge protector is developing a nervous tick. Maybe I'll just go up above it all where the sun always shines, above storms and rain and the failed powers of men. There is something about the perspective of thirty thousand feet that brings a person back into a healthier relationship with human scale. How much more this must be true of space travel. Should I live so long...
