fly away by october-fairy fly away by october-fairy
wham! Proof that not all my stuff is emo. Yesterday my fam and I sent a letter and a self adressed envelope up with some balloons. We're hoping to see how far they will go, but who knows right? Anyway I like balloons, and I hope that these ones in particular are found by someone who will throw them away so no animals get stuck in the strings.

*edit*
The balloons were found in Middleport, NY! Pretty cool :D

How far away is that from your house? (where they were found?) That's a neat idea:D

well, I just mapquested it and I cant be sure of the exact distance because I dont know the exact address or even county (there are 2 different counties for Middleport, NY) where it landed. Anyhow from what I can tell the balloons traveled about 750 miles.

i love baloons. they just scream freedom. and this idea is wonderful, its crazy that they made it that far. i like this photo, but if you made it a bit more saturated, i think it would be alot stronger.

Brightness in a cold winter. Hmm, I can think of some symbolism in that. Such as happiness in an Emo? Very cheerful and contrasted.
