The life of a kite is beautiful but tenuous. Great effort must be put towards its flight, even more should it thrive and soar. A kite needs ample care. You must give it wind. Continual tugs and pulls, caressing the line so that it catches a gust and doesn’t falter. You need to run; a kite needs energy. So run very fast! Run so fast that the kite becomes an extension of your body. So that you share the same heart. What you do on the ground matters very much in the air, especially for the life and death of a kite.
