When I think of kites, I think of those first warm, windy days of March. I think of big, puffy clouds and I think of being by the lake. I remember being a young girl, laboring with my best friend to make newspaper kites that never made it off the ground. I recall that I have never been able to get a kite off the ground.
I've spent a lot of time looking out over the lake, and sometimes I'm fortunate enough to watch others successfully fly kites. April's challenge sparked my memory and I suddenly remembered that I purchased a kite about 10 years ago. I looked for it and found it still carefully tucked away in it's still unopened package. I'm determined to take it to the beach and fly it this March.
As I sit here on the sofa wrapped in quilts and doped up on cold medications because I'm sick AGAIN, I fill my mind with thoughts of warm, March breezes and the billowing clouds that accompany the arrival of spring. I imagine myself standing near the shore guiding my first kite into the wind, and I allow myself to think that good health and spring are both just right around the corner.
