I remember flying over the southern tip of Greenland with you, coming back from Iceland. We were on the right side of the plane for the photos and everyone began oohing and aahing at the brightness and the desolation. And I remember thinking if the plane had to crash, it should be right here. But I also had other stupid thoughts. Because I also thought I might see a polar bear down there, coming out to the tip of Greenland just to look up at me. Click whirr click screeeee. The cameras photographing the bright nothing of Greenland. It was just what people do.
