It made me look at my life a little more carefully. I have been spending a lot of time working lately and when I'm not making things, I am thinking about deadlines for making things. Sometimes, I am sad to admit, I have failed to be fully present in my own life.
Hence the kite. We have had this kite for a long time. It was high time to actually USE it. And have FUN using it.
So we did. It was cold and dreary, but we decided to head to the beach and just live a little. The kite flew well, the kids got along fabulously and I felt as though I reawakened my sense of what is real and important.
(I'd smile, too, if I were in front of this many goodies! The cinnamon smell wafts out onto the main street. Too good to pass up!)
