Painting of Child with runaway red balloon.

“I looked at the skies, running my hands over my eyes,
And I fell out of bed, hurting my head from things that I’d said.

Til I finally died, which started the whole world living,
Oh, if I’d only seen that the joke was on me.” I started a joke, lyrics, Robin Gibb.

Painting of Child with runaway red balloon. It is like this a harmless balloon, can be seen by others as a symbol of wrong, an nuisance. Just as in the Cold War era song, 99 luftbalons by Nena.

I love the lyrics to the song. It is spiritual and thought provoking. Something I like to put into my art.
