Aim for the Horizon

by - December 17, 2010

I've always wanted to fly somewhere in a hot air balloon. Actually start in one place and end up in another, not just go straight up and right back down.

It's at the top of my list of things to do before I die.

I took this, by the way, last weekend while on the way to a 3-year-old's birthday party. The sun had just popped over the horizon when I spotted the balloon out the window.

It was like a promise of a great day.

  1. And I hope that you are having some great days to offset that awful day, Ashton. I also hope that you are on the mend from your recent accident and that you are back in the saddle producing the evening shows again.

  2. I just want to go "aw". Sometimes your posts make me want to have happy sighs or eat magical rainbows. :) Seriously, sometimes you ooze happiness.

    Wow. That was kind of a contradiction. "Oozing" happiness? I need to pick up a thesaurus once in a while.

  3. Balloon picnic at sunrise would be awesome. Make it happen

  4. @Shady: I still have remnants of bruises and a scabbed over knee, but it doesn't hurt to walk anymore so I must be on the mend.

    @Crittle: Oozing is a gross word, lol.

    @Richard: I found out there's a ballooning club close to here so that might actually be a possibility!
