Skywatch Friday

A couple of years ago, to celebrate the
21st birthday of a very special young man who 
didn't make it quite that far, his family 
wrote messages of love on balloons and 
we sent them up to him.


  1. Reading the few lines of your post gave me "la chair de poule", and it is not only because we've lost 10°C in 10 hours !
    I find the idea incredibely beautiful and so full of hope and serenity ! (hope I get the right words)

  2. Merci, Marylene—a mon avis, you got the words entirely right.

  3. What a beautiful idea, Alexa! Hope and serenity, as Marylène said.

  4. my family & I do this every year for my brother-in-law. It is a very powerful way to remember a loved one.
    You captured the moment perfectly in this picture Alexa.

  5. Sad and hopeful and hits too close to home for me to comment properly. For all those children who never got to be adults . . .


Thanks, merci, grazie, danke, hvala, gracias, spasibo, shukran, dhanyavaad, salamat, arigato, and muito obrigado for your much-appreciated comments.
