Take me high above your Black Rock temple dancers,
Your high priestesses,
Your back yard inventors,
Forgotten tinkerers.
I want to glide above those dust ridden jalopy drivers,
Crumbling space bike riders,
Desert wanderers,
Sandy wayfarers,
Deep playa night time crawlers.

Let me gaze at the neon stars
High above,
Safe from bad dreams
And stray mutant cars.
I'll fold up my hopes,
Roll out the air,
Seal up my dreams tight
Safe from dust outs,
White ins.
Soaring.
Galaxies above.
Pixies below.

So come on you weary day sleepers,
You stilted,
You jilted,
You glittering,
Hearts flittering,
Desert butterflies.
Moonscaped passersby.
Come fly with us
Bring us your hearts
We'll fill them up
fly them home.

AntiM, great job. I only wish everyone could see the burn from above. Well, I guess we can with all the drones in the air now. I'll never get packed if I keep starting new projects. Head down. back to sewing. Thanks Bachus. Have a great flight.

Though I generally don't post photos of myself, having never found one that I actually liked, as the ultimate recipient of this amazing gift, I felt it was my responsibility. Thank you Bacchus for an amazing flight. Thank you Angel for having a camera to take pictures. And for randomly being at the airport when I showed up. Thank you AntiM for passing this along when things didn't quite work out.

I have to say thank you as well for the glorious flight, it's something that will stick in my mind for a very long time - now i have seen the skies my father flew in. As soon as i find my camera i will see if i have any decent pictures to post.

By the way Ellorum and I made a great lie about her landing the plane when you had difficulties just before landing. i want to stress to anyone we told this complete fabrication too, that is was a complete lie Bacchus is a great pilot and we both thoroughly enjoyed our completely safe ride.

I didn't think to take a selfie, or a photo of anyone in the plane. Too excited. Nila passed along this gift and how nice she was to think of us. Thanks so much to Bacchus and Graz, so enthusiastic, (?sp) for freely giving such a magnificent thing. I liked listening to the headphone communication and well, it was all so fun! Thanks again!

Just saw this! I got to fly over the city once, and it think I had the same grin, even though I was also kinda terrified. Lucky girl, VC, and Grai too.
