Holding a kite and setting it free, watching it become a part of the wind and dance upwards up up up in the sky!'

'The string between fingers tugging for release, controlling it yet allowing it freedom to go in the direction the kite wills it to :) Flying a kite is a little like life. Skill required but eventually the wind guides its course. #bornfree,' she added.
