I’m delighted to have a new short story up at On Earth As It Is – Lighter Than Air is a reflective piece based on the life of Padre Adelir Antonio de Carli, otherwise known as the Balloon Priest.

While writing this story I experienced three power cuts (in July). So I’m a little superstitious about it, but I hope that if someone is watching from beyond they can perceive the spirit in which I wrote the story – with my sincere respect.
