How does a quilt of a hot air balloon at sun rise depict “Time”? When I was in the 4th grade my parents bought me a subscription of “World” magazine. It was a magazine that National Geographic created for kids in the 70’s. One time they had an article about the Hot Air Balloon Festival in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
I have always been fascinated with hot air balloons, but the article really fueled my interest. When there are hot air balloons around I tend to follow them and watch them gracefully float on the air currents. One time I was in Albuquerque the weekend before the festival. I was able to watch some of them practice and enjoy the morning. I still hope there will be a time when I can ride up into the air at that magical time of day.
