yesterday when we were flying there was a time when the sun was setting & it was shining under the clouds         there was a light under the clouds but not above them.          it made a grey, a slightly pink grey, shining under the clouds, like water       the clouds we were over were in shapes like bushes, some small bushes in rows, bigger bushes coming up, and some like just slopes, with grass            but then we came to the edge of the clouds & we flew out over the abyss

the break in the clouds was in the shape of a river   a very wide river      and when we were over it, far below i could see a real river shining faintly         i thought it must be a strong formation below, to make such a clear shape above it       we could have been over arizona, i thought it might be the grand canyon
