In his careful manner of illuminating the extraordinary within the ordinary, English author F.W. Boreham tells of an early autumn day when he and a friend were traveling by airplane. On the ground that morning, many were grumbling under the gloomy canopy of clouds; it was a dull and heavy day. Yet hundreds of feet above those clouds, every window of the author's plane was flooded with sunlight. "Thus we discovered," writes Boreham, "that, all through life, sunshine is simply a matter of altitude."
