FIELD OF BALLOONS
During your flight you will see soft white clouds passing by you. The wind sings a song in your ears. Soon you will come to a place in the sky where you see tiny bits of color. As you get closer you see it is the Field of Balloons. Each balloon is a feeling you might have. Sometimes we have more than one feeling. All of these feelings are ok.
