Get Here (if you can) ~ David Archuleta

Posted by clairerolfe35 on Saturday, July 13, 2013

Abrra, I feel extremely inadequate in writing this.  For one thing, I cannot find where it relates to David, and I expect it to bore everyone.  I could not find the words to relate how much fun it was, mostly to be going with my lovely granddaughter.  I threw in everything and hope you will cut it drastically.  I only do this because you asked me to and I love you 🙂   Will send pics.  ~ Dayzee.

♦♦♦♦♦♦

No worries Dayzee.  You supply the pics, and I’ll supply the relevant David connections.  After all this time, there isn’t much I can’t relate to David and that includes the importance of family.  The way you told of your experience with your granddaughter was wonderful and not one bit boring even without my throwing David in there every few sentences.   I had fun doing it though, and since I am responsible for supplying David content, I took liberties with your text.  My edits appear in red.  ~ Angelica

Inspired by photos of my parents from the 1920’s, my granddaughter and I take a week every summer to visit the ghost towns and old mining areas where my father worked at that time. It is interesting to see where they lived so long ago in east central Utah.

This year we visited Canyonlands, Capitol Reef and Arches National Parks and Goblin Valley State Park.  We hiked to a place in Arches where the wind had eroded a twisting tunnel through the mountain and when the wind blew it would scream.  It was hard not to relate Arches with “Archies” or “Archuleta.”  Especially when I heard the screams.  It was just the wind, but it sure brought back fond memories.

This year we made plans for a hot air balloon ride.  I know David took a ride in a blimp, but I’m pretty sure he once said he’d like to ride in a balloon someday.    The most difficult part was getting up at 4:20 so that we could be in the balloon basket by dawn.  We watched them fill the balloon and get it off the ground.  The basket had four areas that held three people in each, with the pilot in the center.  13 people?  What were they thinking?  Indeed.  What were they thinking when they put like, a hundred people in a VIP and you had to stand on sore feet for hours waiting for a brief encounter with the pilot, uh, David.  Well, he is kind of a pilot of sorts, fixated as he is on going up.  Think about it:  The Other Side of Down, Elevator, Parachutes and Airplanes, Zero Gravity, and that “like a satellite we’re flying” song.  But I digress.

Fotor0712211349

We were the only people from Utah, except David, who is from Utah but he wasn’t there, but I’m sure he would have wanted to be.  There were only 4 of us from the U.S.   There was a couple from Germany, one person from Ontario, one from Australia and the others were from Asian areas.  Unfortunately, for many fans, David has only been to the Asian areas.  I’m sure that will change when he gets back though.  Ages ranged from 8 to 78, much like the demographic of David’s fan base.  It was great hearing their stories.  The fellow from Australia had been ballooning in many different countries and he was disappointed to find there was no wild life to be seen in that area.  The only living things I have seen in that desert are lizards.  None large enough to be seen from a balloon.  It piqued my imagination that he had seen giraffes and kangaroos from the air.  David would have liked that.  He loves animals.  He might even love lizards.  I don’t know.  He wouldn’t step on one, that’s for sure.

Fotor0712211648

When we go skydiving,  (uuurrk!!!!  Wait!  What?  Guurrl, you can’t just throw a line like that out and not give details, Dayzee.  Please elaborate in comments.)  the plane reaches an altitude above 12,000 feet.  The balloon was only 3,000, but that was enough.  With the balloon there is no steering and the pilot controls altitude by heating the air in the balloon.  He then finds air currents to ride on.  We were in the air for 90 minutes.  About the length of time of a David concert.  The pilot radioed his crew where to pick us up, but as we were landing a strong wind blew us to the wrong side of a railroad track.  The balloon was lifted again and the ground crew grabbed ropes and pulled us to the side where they could retrieve the balloon and pack it on the truck they had driven there.  Just like the roadies pack up David’s gear and off he goes in the bus they had driven there.

It was a great experience that we will never forget.  I could say that about every David concert I’ve been to too.  But I digress.  That reminds me, David digresses a lot, like the way he can never stay on topic in vlogs, just rambles on and on in that adorable way of his.  Oh dear.  I did it again.  #DA2014 can’t come soon enough.  Just come back soon David, even in a hot air balloon.

You can reach me by railway

You can reach me by trailway

You can reach me on an airplane

You can reach me with your mind

You can reach me by a caravan

Cross the desert like an Arab man

I don’t care how you get here

Get here if you can

You can reach me by sailboat

Climb a tree and swing rope to rope

Take a sled and slide down the slope

Into these arms of mine

You can jump on a speedy colt

Cross the border in a blaze of hope

I don’t care how you get here

Get here if you can

There are hills and mountains between us

Always something to get over

If I had my way, surely you would be closer

I need you closer

There are hills and mountains between us

Always something to get over

If I had my way, surely you would be closer

I need you closer

You can windsurf into my life

Take me up on a carpet ride

You can make it in a big balloon

But you better make it soon.

    What a great adventure you had! Thanks so much for sharing your story and the wonderful photos.:) And … SKYDIVING??? Really??? Please do share in comments about that adventure, too. Oh my! You’re quite a daredevil, aren’t you? I wish I had your courage. 🙂

    I wouldn’t be surprised if we get a photo one day of David in a balloon, or (heaven help me cuz I’d probably have a heart attack) jumping out of a plane. I think he’s a bit of a daredevil at heart, too.

    Angelica,

    Wonderful Hot-Air Balloon adventure!
    The scenery has to be spectacular.
    Fun to have David along for the ride!

    His wish almost did come true.
    If you recall, David was scheduled to take a balloon ride in the afternoon of his American Idol homecoming.
    Weather became too windy, and I remember at the time, I was fearful.
    The ride was canceled, but the rest of the day was perfect.
    I was watching the live-stream on my computer
    “up, up” very early in the morning “and away” 1800 miles from Utah!

    David Archuleta’s Homecoming (from Radio FM100.3)

    Date: Friday, May 9, 2008
    Location: Murray High School, 5440 South State Street Pre-Pep Rally Activities
    3:30 PM- Gates will open to the public
    4:15 PM MHS PEP RALLY begins
    4:30 – 5:15 PM Parade of Dignitaries, including David Archuleta and family
    DAVID ARCHULETA to perfom (2-3 songs)
    Hot Air Balloon lift-off to take David (and group) “To the Top” on American Idol
    5:15 David “whisked” off to Utah Jazz Game to sing The National Anthem.

    Thanks to Dayzee (and Angelica) ballooning now seems like an opportunity
    not to be missed. “See what you made me do!!”

    Bluesky, loved your comment that we carry streamers of his inspiration….truly we do that in so many ways

    MT, my son and his sons and I go skydiving together. The first time they went without me. When I scolded him for leaving me behind he told me he had been so scared he was afraid he would not make the jump. Did not want me there pushing him out of the plane. Haha. Since then we have done the jump 3 times. Great pic of David in his iFLY helmet. See how happy he is?

    Tawna, we have had some great moments with David, haven’t we? Now, that is a rush that beats all others. Glad you mentioned the Utah scenery.

    Bluebar, I had forgotten about David’s failed balloon ride. Surely another opportunity will arise.

    Abrra, thank you for encouraging me to share.

It is so cute and he is quite the daredevil too! It would be so much fun to see you two make a jump together! Your post is very much in correlation to David!

    Thank you for taking us inside the hot air balloon with you. I’ve never been on one but have always been fascinated with them. When my daughter was born we used the a hot air balloon motif on the birth announcements as in, “Look Who Has Arrived?” But that’s only on paper. You were brave enough to ride the real thing! Your pictures are wonderful! You, my dear, are an inspiration to us all.

    Dayzee I love hearing about your adventures, loved seeing the old photos. I could never in a million years do what you did – heights are a deal breaker for me. 🙂

    When my husband and I were dating (we are both history buffs), we plotted out a vacation visiting ghost towns in the Upper Peninsula. Old mining towns (copper & iron ore) that were once boom towns. Sometimes there were only foundations left. We LOVE that stuff. Love thinking about the people who carved out a life in the wilderness. 😉

    Thanks to all who took the time to read about my balloon ride, and thanks to Angelica for making it interesting.

    C’mon Jan, get out of that plane. I’m sure you would love it.

    SB, you are an inspiration to me. I so admire your support of David and all good causes.

    Bebe–so your daughter arrived by balloon instead of stork? I like it.

    Abrra, loved seeing Vanessa and her (and David’s) abuelita having so much fun singing together. Family stuff is the best. When my grandson was about 2 years old I was rocking and singing to him. He tapped me on the cheek and said, “Grandma, don’t sing.” That pretty much ended my singing career, but we are still good friends.

    Emme, I appreciate that you enjoyed those old pics. My mother is the one wearing a hat and the baby is my big brother. That old car was driven 30 miles every weekend to the dance hall in Cisco, also a ghost town now.

    Desertrat, I’m certain your vacation will be great. Anyone who answers to Desertrat knows how to have a good time.

    Betsy, I have always wanted to fly. As a child I wished to be a bird, but the diet deterred me.
    Isn’t it fascinating how a town that was once vibrant can be reduced to crumbling foundations? Evidence of drastic change in many lives. I hope there will always be ghost towns to explore.

    Trudy, you are correct. All things relate to David. It’s so difficult conversing with people who do not understand that concept. That is why this is such a comforting place to be.

    The abuelita video is a gem! I wonder if they were singing to David at the end. 🙂

    I decided to burn a CD with some of my old, non-David, favorite songs as well as some of my most favorites of David’s. Thought I would just mix it up a bit, try a little variety. It’s the spice of life, right?
    Well, not so much – I ultimately end up skipping past all of my old, non-David favorites and go straight to him. I can’t help it – I am addicted to that voice. Nothing else will satisfy.

    Two crazy people

    The time hasn’t managed to make me forget you
    Your love gave wings to my love
    I can still feel the taste of your kisses on my mouth
    I can still feel your hands caressing my skin.

    And I don’t want to go on like this
    Being with her and thinking of you

    I’m spending my time just the same
    I can’t stop thinking of you
    In the morning, I wake up with you on my mind
    I call her by your name.

    And I don’t want to go on like this
    Being with her and thinking of you

    How stupid, how crazy we are
    Being with other people and in love with each other
    How stupid, how crazy we are
    Being with other people and still in love with each other.

    And I don’t want to go on like this
    Being with her and thinking of you

    I’m spending my time just the same
    I can’t stop thinking of you
    In the morning, I wake up with you on my mind
    I call her by your name.

    And I don’t want to go on like this
    Being with her and thinking of you

    How stupid, how crazy we are
    Being with other people and in love with each other
    How stupid, how crazy we are
    Being with other people and still in love with each other.

    I can’t get used to
    the coffee made by her yet
    She doesn’t know me well
    It’s not like yours.

    And when I feel her caresses
    I close my eyes and think of you

    And I don’t want to go on like this
    Being with her and thinking of you

    How stupid, how crazy we are
    Being with other people and in love with each other
    How stupid, how crazy we are
    Being with other people and still in love with each other.

    On 15 July last year, it was a beautif Sunday. I was in Chile, Rancagua, was the happiest day of my life. It was the first time I saw David, he sang five hymns in Spanish. It was an experience I will never forget.
    David’s voice was so pure, I thought, I do not need to be of the same religion, I can understand the message.
    Actually when he sang in English, I always understood. The words that sprang to my mind were:
    “There are trips that cause amazement, there are trips that are discoveries, there are trips you want to never end, this is one of them”

    Happy Anniversary Gladys. The best parts of our lives are marked by David events. Thank you for giving us the lyrics to Vanessa’s song. Much better when we have a clue as to what the song is about.

    My son is not doing well. Am spending a lot of time at the hospital, leaning on David music.

    Dear Dayzee,

    Thank you for sharing your time in a balloon with your granddaughter. What a wonderful past you can feast upon from having lived so fully in the present.

    God bless and comfort you and all your family. I pray your son will be restored to you again soon. Remember Dayzee, that parachute will always open.

    Great JR videos from the Philippines. It was such fun to see that little dark spot in the center of his Tshirt grow into a sweat heart. I think there is a special message for Skydancer in there somewhere.

    Was looking for a place for lunch while I was in Ogden City when I saw a large “iFLY” sign on the building.
     photo authcoid205399part2_zps58b98cbf.jpg

     photo authcoid205400part2_zpsca73ab41.jpg

    Went upstairs, and there was a chamber that looked like David might have been there. But there was no palm trees. On closer examination his picture has iFLY Hollywood written on it. Shucks. That chamber was 4 stories high and the noise from the air flow could be heard for a block from outside the building.

    My son’s condition does not change much, but I will let you know when anything terrific happens. Thanks to all for your support. Parachutes are a good thing.

    Oh my heck! I just got this in my email. A fan who took the time to show off his David Archuleta CD collection. He give a personal message to David at the end that is so sweet. I hope he gets to a concert in 2014.

    This is my video on my David Archuleta CD collection and I know this collection of mine is small. David Archuleta is one of my favorite male singers and I’m so inspired by him. His first album CD that’s self-titled is my most favorite one. It was released in November 2008 and as I said I was at the start of my senior year. And the album became was one of my highlights of my senior year during Spring and Summer of 2009 when my senior was almost at an end when I was 18 years old. And if David ever gets to see this video I hope he loves it and I hope that everything turns out wonderful and happy for him in his life and his singing career. The only album that’s missing is the Christmas album.

    Don’t you just love those sound check vids? My go-to vid is this one. I especially love 2:20-2:32. That ♫ “iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiitt”♫ that goes on forever and the little dip afterwards. ♥ And the smile after he wishes someone happy birthday 1:48-1:54 is so cute.
