While reading a book about early balloon flight, Dan was inspired to write this dreamlike piece. As early as the 1700s, before powered flight, we were looking down from on high, seeing the world whole, a view filled with wonder. Perhaps if we could recapture some of that wonderful perspective, we would discover a greater appreciation of the thinly stretched surface of the planet on which we live?
