Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

Color The Wind

   I saw an old man just today,
Who looked worn and weary from life,
         A quiet sort of fella
Who seemed beaten down by his strife.

  But as he passed the park that day,
    He turned to the lake to see
Why there were so many people there,
   Caught up in some reverie.

   He stared at a multitude of kites,
   Looking all feathered and finned:
     Dancing across the open sky,
As they gracefully colored the wind.

   And at first he just stood there stoically,
      Watching the scene unfold,
    Questioning why so many people
      Would be flying kites in the cold.

But then, suddenly there came a birth of a smile,
       And a twinkle that entered his eye.
     All because some very special people,
    Were determined to make their kites fly.

  And I knew as he slolwy turned away,
     And reluctantly began to depart,
       That deep within his tired soul,
   Those kites had touched his heart.

Happy Holidays to all of you .........who fly....sun, rain, sleet or hail, and special thanks to all of those that support us, the co-pilots of our lives.
