A Fun Suggestion
High As A Kite
If you are young enough
to remember flying a kite,
or watching a gas-filled balloon
rising into the sky and far away,
you are young enough to
once again watch one, or both,
doing so once again. Enjoy.
Linking The Two
Can you recall a frustrating day when you wanted to fly a kite but the wind turned to a breeze and the kite with its tail just couldn't rise to the occasion?
There was a solution, but no one suggested it.
Can you recall watching folks launching one or more gas-filled balloons in honor of some occasion or other?
Perhaps you can recall losing your own gas-filled, helium balloon, and tearfully wishing you hadn't let go of the string.
Both have the same solution, namely a longer string attached to the balloon, and even a gas-filled balloon (or two or three, as needed) attached to a kite.
Why should flying a kite be limited to just "the right windy day"?
Why should anyone have to release a balloon, just to watch it drift away out of sight?
Longer string, with a loop around the wrist, allows the balloon(s) to rise majestically to any desired height, without sacrificing the balloon.
And the kite? It can have a balloon-assisted take off to where the winds might be more favorable, or even hang there high above to the consternation of other would be kite flyers whose kites are going nowhere.
Balloons and kites are great! A kited balloon, and a recoverable balloon? What could be better?
