Invisible Planes

A song inspired by Felix Baumgartner‘s freefall to earth, and other unlikely acts of love. 

Like Wonder Woman’s invisible plane, Baumgartner’s long-distance luge to earth was both otherworldly and at the same time within reason. After he slid back down to the ground from the stratosphere, he stood up, brushed himself off, and cheered. It wasn’t that he was fearless –he admitted fear. It was that he prepared, practiced, built a team around him, and stayed vigilantly on task.

Like love, it was a leap, appeared crazy, was built on a vision of optimism and trust, and was the most beautiful thing I ever saw.
