They say every cloud has a silver lining. But not from above. There's a vast ocean of dust and vapor convolving with fragments of thin air. You must read that things don't get better here. Only in such perspective can you understand buoyancy, how the clouds become borderless tides. How the sunlight turns into the opposite nights. Then if you look down you'd find there are no lines. Only discontinuity of waves where sailors are granted a peek to Atlantis. After that, to return from the stratosphere is to claim one will never reach the land. Each landing becomes a deeper dive. Now look above Do you still see the silver lining?
