And in that entire narrative, there was no mention of purple
kites or TrickTails.
I'm shocked I tell you.... simply shocked.
One of the things I shared with Steve!
I first saw this thread soon after stapp posted but, since I was on the eastern slope visiting my kids and relegated to my phone, waited to post until returning home a short time ago. I apologize for the delay, Steve and Chris, but my thoughts are non-the-less sincere.
Yes, the end of an era, one that I was happy to be privileged to share. I learned so much from Steve, on the forum and during those phone chats I enjoyed, and from other forum members. I had the pleasure to visit the GWTW Chico digs for Kmac's second workshop with the Muse, and spent time in person with Steve, Chris and the group. I've met other forum members through forum activities, emails and, later, at festivals, OKR, Ft Worden and QISC to name just a few. Many ongoing friendships developed from the forum, and other members I hope to meet in the future (remember that stapp
). Oh yeah, then there were the kites and I blame Steve entirely for my obsession.
So, while you may no longer be selling kites, Steve, I will always value the years that you did, the forum that you have provided us all, and the joy you brought to me and many others. My best wishes continue to be with you, Steve and Chris, and your families in whatever the future brings your way.
