In General Following your kite Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #29 New 02-01-2012 09:02 AM
I was out in the yard, then came inside. Somehow a thought came to me along with that.

Some people have a vision quest, some search for the meaning of life, some follow their bliss... All this can happen along the way but some of us follow our kite. This is just a metaphor because the only kite I ever flew was a small round horseshoe style with a picture of E.T. (for younger who may have missed the movie, or anyone from another country... ET is Extraterrestrial, in this case one who became friends with a little boy)

I was briefly working for a local kite company that made stunt kites, you know, the ones that do tricks in the air. But they had about 14 rainy weekends that spring and they let me and my friends go, that were doing assembly work in our own homes. But kites are fascinating and are part of both traditional and modern cultures, especially Snoopy cartoons. In that case, balloons, too if I remember correctly.

Same principle, if it gets away you try to follow it sometimes even if you could never catch the string at least you can still see it.

This is pretty profound so I'll let y'all see if it sparks some recognition in your own mind of something you have felt, something you have done...
