My uncle recently took me out to fly kites. He told me to buy a kite from the shop to practice with, but I forgot until the last minute. This didn’t matter, though. We were able to buy one on the way into the park from a vendor at the front gate. Inside the park there were dozens of people flying kites on the windy afternoon, mostly middle aged and older men. My uncle and I went to a less populated area and he began showing me how to get the kite off the ground. Of course, I had done this as a child. But as an adult, I realized that it is both easier to get off the ground than it was before, and also, there is much more to do than just catch the wind. But my kite sailed up, and crashed down, numerous times before I got the hang of it. Then, my uncle pulled out his gear. He had a large kite with a long tail. The kite string was attached to a massive reel that he strapped to his chest. He simply caught the wind and released the kite into the sky. There it stayed for the rest of the afternoon, avoiding other kite lines and zipped side to side, tracing a pattern with its long tail. Finally, as dusk settled, my uncle’s kite began to light up the night. I knew that its illuminated tail and shining strings were visible all across the city. Even though half the time was just spent chatting with other kite flyers, I could see that this was an achievement.
