For Improved Mood, Gaze Upon These Balloon Fiesta Photos

For Improved Mood, Gaze Upon These Balloon Fiesta Photos

IF YOU DON’T KNOW where your retired, RV-driving parents or grandparents are right now, they’re probably in New Mexico. The photo at the top of this post might look, at first glance, like some goofy toys left out in someone’s yard, but they are not. The dark spots are human beings. It’s the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, fool!

I’m sure there are all kinds of facts and figures that can be looked up about this event, but that hardly seems necessary. It’s a ton of hot air balloons launching into the air all at once, as if the 1980s never ended! There cannot be a bottle of champagne left in any store in Albuquerque.

Donec sed odio dui. Nullam quis risus eget urna mollis ornare vel eu leo. Vivamus sagittis lacus vel augue laoreet rutrum faucibus dolor auctor. Donec ullamcorper nulla non metus auctor fringilla. Aenean eu leo quam. Pellentesque ornare sem lacinia quam venenatis vestibulum. Etiam porta sem malesuada magna mollis.

So silly, right? So frivolous. Yet what are you feeling? Come on. Just give in and push play:

Life is short. It is a journey of many stations, many moods.

Do not search for croissants in the bakeries of Albuquerque, New Mexico. They are sold out. For croissant, may I suggest...the balloon fiesta?

Eventually, we must return to our work. But that does not diminish the fact that this moment, too, was real. Be well, my friends. Be well.
