"Kites rise highest against the wind, not with it."
I usually want to walk with the wind at my back, pushing me onward. To face the wind and fight my way to a goal makes achieving it all the more precious. But it make sense that to catch an updraft and rise in altitude you must be facing the wind.
Now I want to make a kite and fly it high!
I had a rainbow kite on a poster with that saying... I think I found it toward the end of college, had it on one wall or another for years!
I also think it's worth noting that kites fly their best with a hand on their string, keeping them grounded and centered while they soar.
plus, kites need some direction to do their greatest acrobatics... somersaulting into the ocean doesn't really count LOL
I wonder if I still have that kite poster stored away somewhere... Joyanna would like it!
I was thinking about a really excellent show from a couple of young marines flying stunt kites! :-)
I'm a pretty poor kite flyer, myself. But it's thrilling when the kite is airborne! And now I've got "Let's Go Fly a Kite" playing in my head...
As "songhead" goes, I'm OK with that one!
