Covers of the Week #24

Theme: Hot Air Ballons

Hot air ballooning is said to be a delightful experience. The winds guide you high above the earth as you drift through the fluffy, white clouds… It seems like an exhilarating time. Unfortunately, a paralyzing fear of heights makes me feel otherwise. My husband once surprised me with plans for a romantic ride and I refused to go. He ended up taking our daughter!

People were baffled at my reticence. Although I aim for courage, there are things I cannot face.

Need someone to kill a poisonous bug? I’m there with my wide-heeled shoe. Could I face a horde of bio-engineered, flesh-eating Zombies? Not a problem, I can shoot and wield a machete. How about cleaning litter boxes for 5 kitties? Bring it on, I’m a crazy cat lady. But fly thousands of feet into the atmosphere in a rickety basket with only ropes to cling to and giant flames above me jetting into a huge balloon? Never.

Still, they’re beautiful things to behold. From afar, what a magical sight to witness those colorful inverted teardrops float through the air! From a safe distance on land, sipping a glass of Pinot Noir, of course.

    Thanks, Jacqueline. Love these covers! There’s more than one way to soar into the heavens!

    Each cover is lovely, but I like the Accornero one best. The couple look like they’re really in love. And they’re hitting the heights—together!

    What say you? And everyone?

    Beautiful cover choices this week, Jacqueline. I have to admit that, like you, I would never be able to set foot in a hot air balloon as I too have a major fear of heights.
