For the Love of Kites!
For thousands of years kites have graced the skies of many nations of the world. They have been used as: - cultural symbols and canvases for artistic expression, - instruments of science, technology and war, - pastimes and amusements for young and old alike, and a pursuit for serious hobbyists. All of these applications have ensured that kites have endured over the course of time.
The Navigation column on the right details sections of the site devoted to kite history. In addition, there is a blog, my Journal/Best-Breezes, that has an eclectic mix of current news about kites and related themes. The search feature allows you to check the entire site for kite topics of interest.
