Famous Balloon Quote:
The winds have welcomed you with softness,
The sun has greeted you with it's warm hands,
You have flown so high and so well,
That God has joined you in laughter,
And set you back gently into
The loving arms of Mother Earth.
— Anon, known as 'The Baloonists Prayer', believed to have been adapted from an old Irish sailors' prayer.
Balloonists are borrowing someone's land every time they take off and land, so they are very careful not to disturb or damage someone's property. The landowner is always thanked, and by the time the crew is leaving the landing site, most balloonists are already planning their next flight!
