Welcome to Awakenings

Life IS history in the making. Every word we say, everything we do becomes history the moment it is said or done. Life void of memories leaves nothing but emptiness. For those who might consider history boring, think again: It is who we are, what we do and why we are here. We are certainly individuals in our thoughts and deeds but we all germinated from seeds planted long, long ago.

Let's Go fly a kite!

In one sense of the phrase, telling someone to "go fly a kite" is expressing desire for that person to leave because of annoyance. In other words, you are telling someone who is annoying to go away. Go away! Go away! Get outta' here! Just go fly a kite to make yourself busy!

In another sense, think about an instance where flying a kite made a tremendous impact on how we live today. Yep! Think Benjamin Franklin. It is very doubtful anyone ever told Ben Franklin to "go fly a kite" in any sense of the phrase. But, flying a kite is just what he supposedly did...in the midst of a thunderstorm... while it was lightning! The rest is history being recalled every time we flip a light switch. What would you miss the most without electricity? Click HERE...

 In 1964, flying a kite was epitomized in song.

Well, "go fly a kite" is exactly what I am telling you to do! On this day go buy a kite or even better make one, go outside and fly, fly, fly away. Let it soar as you breathe in the fresh air simply enjoying time outdoors. Just don't fly it during a lightning storm!

February 8 is...

The celebration declares for you to find a sunny, public open place, and join in with Kite Flying Day! Take a picnic to the park, get competitive. See who can fly the highest, the fastest, and the most intricately! Of course, try to be the one with the funniest, the craziest, the biggest, the baddest, the most unusual kite ever!
Is it snowing where you live? Don't let that stop you...


 Need some kite ideas? You can fly one as small or as big as you like!
