15-04-12 Weekly Photo Challenge #2 Afloat

She used to work in a diner
Never saw a woman look finer
I used to order just to watch
her float across the floor
She grew up in a small town
Never put her roots down
Daddy always kept movin’,
so she did too.

Somewhere on a desert highway
She rides a Harley-Davidson
Her long blonde hair
flyin’ in the wind
She’s been runnin’ half her life
The chrome and steel she rides
Collidin’ with
the very air she breathes
The air she breathes.

Neil Young

15-04-10 Weekly Photo Challenge – Afloat (Danza_de_los_Voladores)

“Those who gave away their wings are sad not to see them fly.”

~Antonio Porchia,Voces, 1943, translated from Spanish by W.S. Merwin

As we came out of the Museo Nacional de Antropología we heard some music coming from a greensward ahead of us. As we walked over we saw,well, some gentlemen “afloat” in the distance.  It went something like this.

This event goes by the name of Danza_de_los_Voladores or “Dance of the Flyers”. It is apparently a centuries old ritual in Mesoamerica.

Here are some other views on floatation…
