Sounds superb. We all have days like this and we all have days when we spend hours struggling with bridles, relentlessly tying and untying knots, adjusting lines and sometimes feeling like we're getting nowhere. Hmmmm... or maybe that's just me at the moment. :-)

Peter says "Go and and hold God's hand for a while". I really like that. My God is the thing that holds the fabric of the Universe together. I've got no idea (nor do I think it really matters) if that's a divine being, what we call "Mother Nature" or just the laws of physics, but there's something about a blissful day's flying, when you really connect with the kite and the wind, that makes you feel like you've become part of the fabric of the universe for just a fleeting second.

You get the tiniest glimpse of something too large to see.

Yep, I like that.
