make your own dreams come true



Have you ever had something you wanted to do so badly
that you could almost taste the desire?

That's how I was with riding a hot air balloon.

I had longed to do that since the first time I saw
the incongruous, nearly magical thing.

Imagine!

Floating high over the Earth, held up only by heated air.
As a kid, I thought it must be pure magic.

I was right.

This summer we made my long-held dream come true. You know how it tasted? Sweet.

i have wanted to ride in a hot air balloon for a long time too - i was like a small child pouting when i didn't get to go (winds too strong). i hope i get another chance.

Riding in a hot air balloon would not be my idea of fun (the last time I was on a ferris wheel I mortified my children by clinging onto the central pole of our 'basket' with my eyes shut very tightly). BUT how wonderful that your long-held dream came true and that it was just as wonderful as you'd hoped. It's magical, the way a lot of life turns out to be.
