Let there be lights (and kites) again!
The tricks that memory play -- when I came across this old print the other day of fireworks at Kites on Ice back in 2001, I thought I remembered the show coming Sunday night, at the end of a wonderful weekend. But then I found some old notes that that put it in the middle of the weekend, on Saturday night, more of a climax than a finale -- "In the evening went to the kite show for fireworks and the magic of kites flying in the night. Dark little Brueghel figures on the ice." I know I sound like a broken record, but we should have something like this again -- and fireworks certainly do brighten a winter night.
