DANCE OF THE BALLOON FAIRY

Posted by 1 on

  DANCE OF THE BALLOON FAIRY  . I spent a good portion of my balloon life in earlier years entertaining with balloons that I twisted and stories that I told. It was a great experience for me and for the audience. However, I never did such elaborate lighting and choreography as we see here. For one event I did "do my thing" on roller skates in the round, in the school auditorium. There was a story line for the event and there were props, but not the special lighting. And, There was no music. I expect that the music above...

ABSTRACT TOTEM MadeWithBalloons™

    ABSTRACT TOTEM MadeWithBalloons™  . I am not sure what tribe or clan this design might represent. It just "grabs" me as some sort of abstract representation of a people from the past. Yet, it leaves me wondering if, perhaps, they were more advanced than we.  The original balloon sculpture was a column by Jose Antonio Peztaña for "evento QUALATEX PUEBLA" as shown to the right.

A DAY TO REMEMBER - A MISSION TO FULFILL MadeWithBalloons™

Posted by 1 on

  ---  ROUSEings --- By Graham Rouse A DAY TO REMEMBER It was a day that I like to remember. Mary and I were out with children and grandchildren picking blueberries in the  sun. There was teasing and chasing and laughter. There were spills and tumbles and a few tears. There were hugs and smiles and medicinal kisses. There were bags and baskets of blueberries to carry home. Blueberry pancakes and pies along with blueberry toppings for cereal and ice cream were sure to follow. It was a very good day. Mary was picking blueberries when she lifted her head...

Visit Nao Osaka's original post of this photo. . ---  ROUSEings --- By Graham Rouse Nao Osaka's bugs bunny tells a story.
