Go fly a kite

Let's go fly a kite
Up to the highest height!
Let's go fly a kite and send it soaring
Up through the atmosphere
Up where the air is clear
Oh, let's go fly a kite!
~ From the movie Mary Poppins, partial lyrics to Let's Go Fly A Kite ~

If you ask most anyone else what sort of day it is today, they will say it's:
  • Windy
  • Sunny
  • Clear blue skies, very few clouds (if any)
  • Warm(-ish)
Well, it's all these things today. However, I don't like to call it just a warm, sunny, windy day with no clouds. That's too boring. And typical.

Around this time of the year, Lotusland experiences these sort of days. It's sunny and warm. It's very windy (I was almost knocked over sideways a couple of times when I was walking outside).

Today, my friends, is a good day to go fly a kite. What other way of describing a day like today. You want to be at the park or the beach with the lovely sunshine. It's windy enough to do something fun and whimsical, like flying a kite. It a day where you want to sit back, relax and be carefree. Or play hooky from the office/school.

This is a phrase that I've always used growing up whenever we had a perfect kite flying day. This phrase embodies all the various descriptions in a few simple words.

Yes, today is a great day to go fly a kite.
