Journey with Three Muses



"Don't listen to what they say. Go see."

- Chinese proverb

This weeks Three Muses Challenge is INCREDIBLE JOURNEY..

Have we all not wished at one time or another that we too could
be as free as the run away balloon...
Have you ever noticed that as the balloon drifts the crowd will stop to watch it float away.

Your wonderful piece certainly made ME stop to watch, and dream, and float away for a bit too! Magical, Louise! Bravo! Hugs, Terri xoxo

Magical indeed. What a stunningly beautiful journey. Yes, we would all love to float away on a balloon and you made me stop and think about balloons in flight. I have to agree that there is a fascination in watching them disappear into the blue. Wonderful work. I love it.

Bravissimo! Magical, effervescent, and lovely, Louise. I want to float away right into the fantasy of that sky.

Diane said...

I love the whole piece, of course, but the book and the teacup really caught my fancy! I'm afraid of heights, so I guess I looked more closely at the grounded part - LOL!

Taluula said...

Oh I hope everyone looks at this in its enlarged version Louise. Not only is your piece beautiful but also I love the little hidden poem there too.

Thanks Louise for the b-day wishes. Love your post and yes I wish I could just float away sometimes. My Friend Lisa called last night and told me that she let my birthday balloons float away. Neat that I saw your blog about that today! Hugs***Renea
