Blue Kite in the Blue Monsoon Sky



- Author unknown 
I often sit and wish that I 
Could be a kite up in the sky,
And ride upon the wind and go 
Whichever way I chanced to blow.

Chidren and Kites

Children are like kites.
You run with them until you are breathless.
They crash – you add a longer tail,
they hit the roof-top – you pluck them from spouts.
You patch and comfort, adjust and teach.
You watch them lifted by the wind
and assure them some day they’ll fly.
Finally they’re airborne
but they need more string
so you keep letting it out.
With each twist of the twine there’s
sadness and joy because the kite
becomes more distant and
you know it won’t be long before
it will snap the fine line
that has bound you together,
soar as it was meant to soar… independently free.

I always thought children are like kites-they like to fly on unchartered paths, but at the same time do not want their parents to let go of the string!!
Beautiful picture. You have to be a very good photographer.

Now I want a kite! I guess I'll wait until my daughter gets a bit older. 6 weeks is too young I think :)

Hello

Very interesting Blog. Thank you for taking the time to make a nice blog. It seems like everyday someone is coming out with a new blog but you can tell who puts effort in to theirs, in fact not to sound like an advertisement, but if I were you I would go to http://www.autosurfmonster.com and submit this blog so thousands of others can see it for free…I personally have a few blogs on it myself… well, I don’t want to take any more of your time.. I look forward to all the updates.

Muito legal esse blog tem fotos muito boas.
Você é da India é isso?
Aqui no Brasil está sendo exibida uma telenovela sobre a india.
Essa foto me lembra o livro O Cassador de Pipas que nos faz lembrar daquela história.
