The journey: Part two

Do you remember what I told you last time? I told you that they made this because they wanted to fulfill a long-desired dream;  the dream to get to  the shiny dots in the sky, you remember? It’s funny, because now we know that these ‘shiny dots’ are stars. But back then they didn’t. Back then there were a lot of things they didn’t precisely knew. They just guessed and hoped for the best.

It took them quite a long time to finally get there. They tried just about anything to get up in the air. And by experimenting so much they learned more and more. They experimented with lots of things, from hot air and other gasses in huge balloons, to mechanisms with enormous bird wings, to impressive machines involving all kinds of complicated, chemical processes. They eventually learned more than they could have ever imagined; they learned how to fulfill their dream.

The journey was long and complicated. But even though they had to make lots of decisions, even though they had to take risks and overcome their fears, it wasn’t that difficult at all.

Pursuing their dream wasn’t difficult because they believed that the manifestation of that dream was possible. They believed in their dream.

The only thing they had to do was follow their heart.
