Kite flying saga ends on low note



“When life offers you a dream so far beyond any of your expectationsit’s not reasonable to grieve when it comes to an end.” Bella, from Twilight saga by Stephenie Meyer

This localized saga of flight ended on a low note. The light breezes of the day did not co-operate with this determined dad’s efforts to launch his store-bought kite into the wild blue yonder. His efforts and his resolve should be applauded. The quality time spent with his children priceless.

E D I T O R I A L   N O T E 

This is the  final entry in a four-part series describing the planning and the care this dad exerted trying to fly the kite this day. 


A saga is defined as a long, involved story, account, or series of incidents”. This is the tale of one man’s attempt to launch his newly purchased store-bought kite into the sky above.

The action is confined to a few hours on a sunny Sunday afternoon in a school yard devoid of pedestrian traffic or curious passersby.

The major players in this inspiring saga of human determination and grit are a young father and his two boisterous  children.

The dad’s dream of flying the kite were counter balanced by Mother Nature’s lack of any sort of breezes to launch the flimsy toy.

This is a saga of family love, hope and determination.
