Earlier this month, I took about half an hour off to fly a kite.
Even with the wind we get here in Lynn Canal, we don’t fly kites often. Chores and projects occupy most of our time, of course. Also, we need to carefully choose where to fly a kite—downwind of the wind generator, for instance.
I like to fly kites, but I don’t need to do it for long. I like to send them up, tie them down, and do something else: eat a picnic lunch, read a book, play a game. I consider kites almost as much decoration as recreation, I guess.
As such, it took a long time to finally get around to flying my kite, but eventually, I made it. And, it felt good!
I stuck to flying the kite instead of doing anything else, except I confess to watching the water next to me for signs of fish.
