Kites a mysti-

Never Give UP!

Santa Rosa, CA. ~ If you can’t have man’s best friend with you for a romp at the beach, take a kite in- stead. When I fly my kite I feel most free to be me.


bridge be - tween earth and sky. When my white Samoyed wol f Nikki left me many moons ago for the happy hunting grounds, I felt com- pelled to buy a kite; name it Nikki and fly it in his honor. It has been a ritual that has brought me both peace and joy over the years and fly- ing a kite never gets old. There is a beach that sprawls north of Bodega bay on the Sonoma coast that

the wind was so strong I couldn’t ha ng. Instead of leav- ing

the 12th hole and a


voice told


me to go back the same way I came. So I drove back into the teeth of the gale down the cart path on the 11th hole. Half- way to the tee-box I no-


ticed something out the cor- ner of my eye on the ground. It was my Nikki kite, perfectly intact, ten days later and three and a half miles away from Salmon Creek Beach.


I asked a mathematician is called Salmon


Creek. I have flown my Nikki kite there many times. A few weeks ago brought us another breathless day at


coast


with a slight breeze. My Nikki kite was flying with me 150 feet up in the sky. It was the most perfect gentle flight and Nikki was just cool as a cu- cumber flying on high. After a trance-like moment elapsed I lost my grip on the spool and Nikki flew away. I thought he was gone again. Five days later the heat drove me again from Santa Rosa to the Links at Bodega harbor where I played a respectable round of golf in a fierce wind. Ten days later I came to the


friend of mine what were the odds of that Nikki kite finding me on that golf course ten days after the fact. He said one in a billion. Perhaps this was Nik- ki’s way of letting me know that he never really left me; that he continues to fly with me, whether I am on the golf course or not. He is the guide, that dynamic force of magic and wizardry who inspires me to incomprehensible heights of wonder. We all have access to the guide, the living voice of the ancestor;

might be a hawk or a wolf or a kite that runs with you on your journey to the links or beyond. Kites are

on the frig or your computer monitor, add a funny screen- saver, put up posters or pic- tures that make you smile. Smiling is contagious and of- ten leads to laughter. The late comedian Victor Borge left us with this insight: “Laughter is the shortest distance between two people.” Take a “laughter therapy” or “laughter yoga” class, or join a morning phone laughter call-in club. Warning: laughter may be hazardous to a bad mood. And here’s an-
