My Hot Air Balloon Adventure

It had been a dream of mine since I was 10 years old, when I first saw the colored shapes dancing in the sky.  I grew up near a park where the Hot Air Balloons used to take off from. During the summer months while we were eating our dinner outside my whole family would watch in awe as the Hot Air Balloons would lift off above our heads. The passengers used to wave to us while we were eating. For years I thought to myself, “I’m going to go up in one of those one day.”

Then I thought “What am I waiting for?!”

With this years nü Icon Movie release I wanted to do something to celebrate and activate its magic. Realizing a childhood dream seemed like the perfect way to honor the magic of the movie and enter a whole nü reality traveling in nü Icon style.

Going up in a Hot Air Balloon was a completely surreal experience.

Did you recognize the music in the video? It is the theme music from last years nü Icon Movie. The beautiful voice you hear is Ariel White, who was featured in last years movie and she is gracing her presence again in this years nü Icon Movie.  Hearing this music carries me on a breeze of beauty.

Here’s a sketch I did to dream into the Hot Air Balloon experience.  The reality of the experience was even more magical then I imagined.

While the balloon was blowing up I was able to go inside the belly of the rainbow and dance! It felt like a Shamanic Dance to call in the Rainbow Tribe for this years nü Icon Movie. This journey is for you!

Looking at the world from the Hot Air Balloon perspective is stunning.

It’s different from being an in airplane because there are no walls or windows blocking you from the air, it is just you in a basket in the sky.

The fractal brilliance of nature is outstanding. Seeing trees and crops from above does a macro/micro mind-trip.

It was extra special to enjoy this magical experience with my creative soul mate Kevin Thom. Kevin is also the photographer of all these images and this years nü Icon Movie.

We took off with 3 other balloons and danced in the sky with them.

Landing with a whole nü perspective on life. Amazing!

We were up in the air for about an hour. Our pilot from Skyward Balloons sent this flight map after the trip to show us where we traveled and how high up we went. How perfect that our flight pattern was a rainbow!
