Written Statement

To me, turbulence is noise. It is messy. It makes me feel worried. It is confusing. My mum and I went to a car wash. The spray banged against the doors and windows. The huge brushes twirled so close to the car. It was loud. It was scary. Nothing was clear. This felt like turbulence. But then something interesting happened. I noticed the water flow on the windscreen. They reminded me of a waterfall and waves crashing. The soap made some fascinating patterns. I began to imagine. I saw a rainbow forest and a magical island. The car wash was still loud but I was not scared anymore. I felt happy and a little bit silly. I did not know turbulence could also be exciting and beautiful. I borrowed my mum’s phone to take the photos of the windscreen. It gave me the best view. The car was clean and the noise stopped. Now, it is a clear view.
