A Kite (n. /kīt/) - is something that is tethered yet in flight out against the void. It flirts with the external forces but has a single point of origin, afloat only be the tension of a child’s hands. This tension, along with an antagonistic force: the wind, is what keeps it in the air. The stronger the wind is, threatening to blow it away, the higher it soars.
In a way, it’s an object the most comfortable with adversity.
