the path of the sage must become the path of the hero

Today’s flight time.


This is an old photo and was not taken today.  But this was the kite I flew today, complete with the purple tail attached.  The wind was quite gusty and intermittent, but got very strong at times.  If it had been consistent, I would say it would almost have been strong enough for those big power kites that some use for windsurfing, dune jumping, and pulling buggies.  I have a power kite, but it is much too small for anything like that.
Both the kids accompanied me today so Princess Thunderstorm (Cimmy) could catch up on the housework.  They were surprisingly well behaved, both Princess and Jak Jr.  He did quite well sitting in the stroller, and when he managed to get out, was good on his backpack harness and leash, and Princess did an excellent job of looking after him, despite his penchant to wander towards the street.
We returned shortly before sunset.  Since I fly in the park on middle school grounds, I have to wait until the students are released… last time I tried in the morning last year, I had to have a little chat with the principal.  (No, it wasn't that bad– he just said I needed to inform the office.  But never again.)
I think Princess said next week is spring break for her so maybe there might be more pictures.  We'll see how it goes.

Wherever you see "jaklumen", that's me- the username is still unique as of the current year. Be aware that the facet you see, is only a small part of the me that is me.
