Kite-flying 风筝的季节

Again, Winston and I went out to the park to fly kite on this windy day. This time we used our new kite, bigger and better. No much effort, the kite was high in the sky. The wind and the quality of our new kite just made it possible for us to sit and eat on the ground while flying our kite. We only need to make little adjustment when the wind changed.

To some point, family relationship is like the string of the kite. If the string is too short, or if we are afraid to let go, the kite can never fly high. However, without the string, the kite would easily fly along with the wind without any pull and fall unrecoverable very soon, even for the best kite.

For parents, if they always keep their kids so close on sight, their kids could never reach some point high. Parents give advice when needed so their kids would not lose themselves in the turbulence of society chaos.

The same may apply to the relationship between husband and wife, between friends, and maybe between people and God.


最近的气候很适合放风筝,在Park放风筝後,回到家里,往窗外看还是一堆风筝在天上飞,好一个风筝的季节。这时候,如果不想放风筝,千萬别到公园或绿地,因为会不断有卖风筝的人走到你面前推销,直到你也放上一个风筝才罢休。

Go for Kite-flying!





This kite flies so easily. I can sit, eat, and fly kite at the same time. Piece of cake!

You done it so well by associating flying kites with the application of God's world. I love the way you draw the analogy of human relationship and the issue the society is currently facing with the string and the kite. Amazingly well. FYI, I do sometimes bring my kids to fly kites as well, so as to catch up what I have missed during childhood. Keep it up to your good work and look forward to hearing from you,
