This is a song inspired by the story, Sky Ceiling, which the Captain dictated to his mother while sitting in their backyard one recent sunny day.  

 

Captain Melafus had some very thoughtful requests for the lyrics and instruments to be used in the song. Here it is!

quotes from moms

"OH MY GOD THIS IS AMAZING!!!!! We are cracking up over here. Incredible!!!"  

-Tara, mother of Jack (The Sea Turtle)

"There were so many great things about this...  It was clear that a deep respect for his original creative work was central to how you guys approached the production of the story...The boys were both so inspired by the process of writing their stories, and sharing their stories with each other, and sharing each other's excitement over the production of their stories. They still to this day seem to be drawing inspiration from the experience."

- Kara, mother of Lander (The Problem) and Finn (The Tale of Savannah The Horse) 

"Ahhhh it's amazing!!!!  I just saw this, and [Captain Melafus] is already in bed.  I CAN'T WAIT to share it with him in the morning! This is such a gift.  Thank you... I just shared it with him. He said "It's perfect!""

- Elisabeth, mother of Captain Melafus (Sky Ceiling)

Hvad siger mor

"OH MY GOD dette er fantastisk !!!!!  Vi griner så meget herovre. Utrolig!!!"

-Tara, mor til Jack (The Sea Turtle)

"Der var så mange gode ting ved dette... Det var tydeligt, at en dyb respekt for hans oprindelige kreative arbejde var centralt for, hvordan I gutter nærmet os produktionen af historien ... Drengene blev begge så inspireret af processen med at skrive deres historier og dele deres historier med hinanden og dele hinandens begejstring over produktionen af deres historier. De ser ud til, at de frem til i dag henter inspiration fra oplevelsen."

- Kara, mor til Lander (The Problem) og Finn (The Tale of Savannah The Horse)

"Ahhhh det er fantastisk!!!!! Jeg har lige set dette, og [Captain Melafus] er allerede i seng. Jeg er så spændt på at vise det til ham om morgenen! Dette er simpelthen en gave. Tusind tak... Jeg har lige viste det til ham. Han siger "Det er perfekt!"

- Elisabeth, mor til Captain Melafus (Sky Ceiling)
