How Far Can You Rise?

Day 252  September 11, 2013

“Your life is like a balloon…if you never let yourself go, you will never know how far you can rise.”  – Linda Poindexter

Escaped Balloons

Escaped Balloons
made from rose petals and ivy stems

“Be unnatural.  Work only with natural materials to make something that would not normally be found in nature.”  -from 365 A Daily Creativity Journal by Noah Scalin

“Nobody can be uncheered with a balloon.”  -Winnie the Pooh

“who knows if the moon’s
a balloon,coming out of a keen city
in the sky–filled with pretty people?
( and if you and I should
get into it,if they
should take me and take you into their balloon,
why then
we’d go up higher with all the pretty people
than houses and steeples and clouds:
go sailing
away and away sailing into a keen 
city which nobody’s ever visited,where
always
it’s
Spring) and everyone’s
in love and flowers pick themselves” 
―e.e. cummings, Collected Poems
