I was reminded today of something I used to love to do….flying kites! I thought about it, and looked around some recently, and you know…..I don’t recall seeing ANY kites in the air – not ONE! How odd is that? I guess people just don’t have the time for such things. The parks seem a bit empty too (except birthday parties, and then they’re swamped).
Have we lost the love for outdoor playtime? Do we just not have any way of squeezing that time into the day? Maybe that’s another reason why we’re so stressed out all the time, cranky, and irritable. We don’t take the time to kick back…and have some FUN.
I did something rather cool the other day. The company I’m at made up a new advertising campaign, which I thought was cool and all, but wasn’t too hot on the main mascot, so I thought to come up with one on my own, which feedle posted on his latest entry (THANK YOU!). Makes me wonder if I didn’t ignore my calling to become a multimedia artist. DANG….maybe I should have gone to Art Institutes like I was thinking about so long ago.
