Taking Flight for Heaven, Without a Death

To cheer myself up, I unearthed some pictures that I took back in 2005, when I arranged a pre-birthday treat for Diana by giving her a picnic in Castle Park. This was followed by a trip in the tethered balloon that used to summer there. The light was wonderful, the balloon had a touch of Miyazaki, and we had great views of the bombed-out church, the old warehouses, and everything else that time and the Council had left standing in that part of Bristol.

Somehow the height and space and light and warmth feel like a good antidote for today.
