Yesterday my husband and I flew a kite together for the first time. We’ve thought about doing this before and just never got around to it. But, yesterday was another of our beautiful Spring afternoons – almost 50 degrees! We found the kite, hidden accidentally in the garage, and headed out to find just the right clearing to give it a shot.
Now, neither of us had flown a kite since childhood. Our kite’s been with me for nearly two decades either riding around in the trunk of my old car, just in case the occassion presented itself to pull over and hoist it up, up into the blue when the mood struck me. Only problem was that sitting in the trunk it was out of site, out of mind. So pulling over spontaneously hadn’t occurred. Ugh! Great idea though – it just wasn’t as practical as it was attractive. Now I have a different vehicle, so the kite packaging has been visible in the garage most of the last few years, still untried. I’m so happy we remembered it yesterday – and we had SO MUCH FUN!
When we finally found a good clearing, it just didn’t have very good wind so we hopped back in the car and drove to another space a few blocks away. And presto, the kite climbed easily up and away! We couldn’t believe how high it went! And it’s not a fancy new kite. It’s simple, rather small, colourful and with a very long three part tail. Just like I watched so many times in Colorado parks on weekends when I lived there. So here’s this very simple, easy past time /hobby that’s been sitting patiently waiting for us to notice it, and we finally did. It doesn’t cost us anything other than a little gas and the motivation to go outside on a beautiful day to enjoy ourselves, together, with our Higher Power in control. Perfect day!
