La Vista Nebraska, October 12, 2014 One Sky, One World festival.

So 2014’s flying season draws to a close. It was a good year, flying in a blizzard, flying in the rain in Italy, the First fly in an Omaha park in a very long time, and tolerable weather for all of the flys. I had fun, at all events. It was fun to make new friends, see old friends and enjoying the time with everyone. Yesterday, I had a great time with my friend Todd. I did not put the large show kites up, instead, I flew stunt kites, 2 line or 4 line kites that you can control the speed, direction and balance of to make it do acrobatic things in the sky. It was good to spend time with my friend, and it was also fun to let other club members be the main draw of the festival. Sometimes, it is just fun to blend into the crowd, be part of the scene, not steal the scene. In 2015, Jen and I are going to mix things up a little bit. We are going to at least 2 new festivals, and not attending a couple of our regulars, we are also hoping for a big surprise very close here in Omaha, but that is for another post. People say, variety is the spice of life, and I guess, in 2015 we will find out if that is true. This winter, I have some  pieces to fix, and I might actually try my hand at making something, but we will see, I have not decided if I will or not yet. Yesterday was cold, but the wind was good, flying stunt kites was a refreshing break from the normal routine for me, so I am very glad I did it. Here’s to a great 2014, and I really hope an incredible 2015.
