Seeing Things In A New Light: Windless Kite Festival

A Windless Kite Festival
(An oxymoron, if there ever was one.)

Held indoors
(Of course, where else do you fly a kite.)

In January
(Any other month every sane person would outside flying their kite — in the wind!)

An annual event celebrating its 12th year in 2013
(It’s a joke. Right? What could there possibly be to see?)

Hmm.  How about: Athleticism, Artistry, Precision, Strength, Gentleness, Drama, Grace, Musicality ….

    What do you see? Hours and hours of dedication! Would you go? If I hear about it in my neck of the woods, I’ll be there. Would you participate? Oh heck no but gosh is it beautiful to watch.

  2. “Beautiful to watch” – Yes. I had no idea.
