This was a poem writen years ago to my wife (at the time) about competing and
the thoughts and motivations that helped push me along. I dedicated every
performance to her...

Flying  

It's this time I miss you the most
These silent moments before we take flight
Those of us who touch the sky

My mind wanders and I think of you
We hold hands and look into each others eyes
I touch your lips and you smile at me
The summer breeze blows in your hair
These wonderful times

At once my mind is distracted
A rush of passion urges me to fly
Once again I spread my wings and take to flight
My body aches as I climb higher
Soaring and diving in a musical ballet

        And above the clouds we dance
Things that cannot be on earth
Find truth in the sky

        And in the wind I call your name
I say I love you and
All the world can hear

        And on the wing we risk all
Like the eagles passion fall
We trust with our lives
And we love with our souls
And we touch in the sky

Stronger on the wing
I reach to the ground
And though I may be judged
I can smile
For I know that I have flown from the heart
And we have shared this moment
And this piece of the sky
Together.

<see poem in main post>

 The ability to *let go* while you are flying a kite... no matter what the
format...
 Reaching to the sky with your mind, and letting the moment take control of the
physical surroundings. Using thoughts of inspiration to drive the performance
of the kite into a unique, one time only expression of the heart and soul.
 An observer can feel the drive and passion.  Many times people who have been
hurt the most, and use kite flying as an emotional release, are the ones who
turn a seemingly simple task of flying a kite INTO a spiritual experience...
for themselves and anyone watching... what I like to call *flying their kites
with their teeth*.
 Possible good news is we ALL have been hurt in life to one degree or another,
so ALL of us have the ability to turn a performance into an act of magical
healing... works almost as good as a massage from Janice.

Roger,
I am a lurker here trying to learn about kiting.  But I would like to
de-lurk for just a moment.  I have recently rediscovered my kite (found in a
move, hidden behind lots of stuff), a parafoil that I used to play with
(smile) a lot a few years back.  I know the part about flying the kite and
experiencing the healing that comes with touching the wind as my old friend
has done just that.  Mmmm.... Thanks for putting it all into words.  I
appreciated it.
Pat
