I flew a kite today


Recommended Posts

I flew a kite today.  It had been some time since I had.  The winds of Spring were calling & I had an old friend with me.  The Zephyr knows me well.  It was my first good kite.  I am not a great flier but modesty is a good trait for someone always learning.  Don't know why it had been so long, probably over a year.  Maybe life seems tough at times or has too many distractions but there is really no reason not to indulge.

I had missed the wind on the back of my neck.  I did seem to still remember how to not crash.  Pulled off a few tricks, made some blunders but did some successful ground recoveries.  I enjoyed the concentration involved that allowed me to focus & zone out into the moment of flight.  The winds were fickle as the usually are here in the mountains.  Varied from dead calm to gusts that made me park at the top with the lines whining.  Love the whine.

Hope I don't have such a pause again.  If I always carry some kites with me I will surely fly some more.

Best wishes from SHBKF

That is my favorite feeling. Thank you for sharing.

 I’m glad to see that the old fashioned blue car (the avatar) has returned here after a long pause.

Nice to hear from you again!!
