Writing Wednesday: Airplane Snapshot

{This week has been absolutely crazy, but I don't want to desert my Wednesday goal already... So here's something I wrote the last time I was on an airplane.  It's brief--think of it as a descriptive snapshot.}

From my vantage point, ten thousand feet in the air, the land stretches wide and brown and wrinkled.  Dry riverbeds weave their way through the lowlands, black and branching like veins.  The tortuous routes of streams prove that the path of least resistance is long and winding.  Lakes bleed across the terrain like large inkblots.  The airplane's shadow skits below us, small as a mosquito.
