It was my birthday on the 9th of February and my girlfirend Nicky gave me a card she had made. One the front of the card she had drawn dawn from 30,000 feet. The note inside read:
This is one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen. On the flight home from Vietnam I was on such a high and while everyone else slept throught the night I watched the sky. For about four hours we were flying with this most amazing perpetual dawn, following it, caught in this beautiful moment. As far as I could see the night was broken with a streak of colour until it curved away with the earth. In the sky above, tiny white stars were out and below the sky was filled with incredible thunder clouds which flashed with lightening. It was so peaceful, at the quiet limit of the world, looking down, frozen just at that moment when everything is about to happen and I felt time didn't exist anymore and I was just floating with the dawn. I feel like that when I'm with you, like I'm going to explode because I'm so happy and becuase I love you.
