The flight of hot air balloons

I love the Home Forum page article on hot air ballons, "Soaring on the Wings of ... Hot Air," Oct. 20. Recently, several of these "huge colorful spheres" were launched about a mile from our house, and as I watched them float overhead, I wondered what such a flight would be like. The writer addresses my wonderings more than adequately, and I am amused at how her initial misgivings mirrored my own. This is reading at its most delightful - learning something new and exciting and laughing at myself at the sa me time. Janet Danielson, Lincoln, Neb.
