How does it feel!

As if it was me, not Felix Baumgartner. As if I jumped from space. As if it was me who floated for two hours in a capsule towed by an enormous helium balloon before leaping from 128,000ft – almost four times the height of a cruising passenger airline. I was feeling cold, I had fear that the speed I fell at would send me into an uncontrollable spin and the exposure to vacuum would literally cause my blood to boil. I was worried that my space suit could tear and that the low pressure in the stratosphere could cause my lung and blood circulation problems. Suddenly something happened. I blew my fears away. I forgot all the problems. I started feeling like a bird. I was flying in my dreams. It was like a dream until I landed on Earth.

    Would so love to do this. To fly. From the edge of space to land safe on Earth. About as far below as its possible to get outside orbit.

    I love the dreams I sometimes have of flying.

    Reminds me of this :

    “Floated back down, cause he wanted to share, his key to the locks on the chains he saw everywhere .. But first he was stripped & then he was stabbed by faceless men . well fuckers, he still stands! .. And sometimes is seen a strange spot in the sky. A human being that was given to fly.”

    Song lyrics, Pearl Jam ‘Given to Fly’.

    Hope I can link here, apologies if not.
