Bright joy

Many of the children during the Lights for Hope Christmas outreach party live in extremely dense shanty communities. A few of them didn't bother with the games or inflatable slides—they just reveled in having enough space to run around flying their colorful kites.

I do appreciate that shot of clear sky, since in my part of the world, clouds and fog rule...possibly until February.

What a beautiful, uplifting (literally!) shot, Hilda. Remember flying kites when you were a kid? I had one of those 70s plastic ones that looked like a bat. Wow, that thing could soar.

Thanks for a happy memory and a beautiful image today.
