It’s been over two weeks since I’ve flown a kite. I am feeling some withdrawal symptoms. That may sound strange to some people. But flying kites brings relaxation and a sense of accomplishment. Relaxation from watching the single line kites floating in the sky and accomplishment from improving on my control of a stunt kite. And when the weather is good, the wind is right and you don’t get out to the kite field, the days seem wasted.
After not flying for a while, it is dangerous to walk into a kite shop. There is inevitably a kite that is new and begging to be flown. And it is sure to be a kite you’ve been debating about buying for a few weeks. The end result is an addition to the kite bag, a show kite for special occasions and festivals.
