I’m looking forward to kite flying season. I’ve got bamboo and China paper with which to experiment. The giant kites of Sumpango, Guatemala are astonishing, and the children flying their homemade kites from hilltops surrounding the town is a sublime sight. Kites make me happy to contemplate the future where wind and solar power dominate, and communities all over the world no longer have to live with the fear that their aquifer is going to be destroyed by toxic contaminants from oil, heavy industry, and agriculture. We’ve got to watch out for each other.
