Spring 2011

When I went to celebrate the Chinese New Year I opened the best fortune: “It is a happy talent to know how to play.” What a great philosophy! I keep this posted by my computer to remind me about the importance of play. Kite flying is certainly play and I hope you make time for kiting this spring.

The March 11 earthquake and tsunami devastated much of Japan. As the president of the American Kitefliers Assoc. noted, “we all share the same sky.” This season’s coupon is a donation of your sale to the Japan Kite Association.

Celebrate Earth Day on April 22 by flying a kite. This day was set aside 31 years ago to show appreciation for earth’s natural environment. Can’t think of a better activity to commemorate the day!
