The helicopter pilot looks back and nonchalantly yells, “The weather is very bad! We may have to turn back.” Comforting…
The black ocean below is littered with broken ice that is surrounded by impossibly turquoise water. The rhythmic beats of the helicopter vibrate through my body as we navigate around lunar rock formations that jut out of the ocean. Glued to the window, I have forgotten about weather and everything else that occupied my mind.
The indescribable beauty of Greenland has provided me with complex revelations. These stark landscapes demand only admiration. The large, never-ending mountains reach up towards the universe, beckoning the clouds to wrap around them like blankets. These old giants inspire a simplicity and capacity of the mind; here humanity and its problems are left behind.
