Andrew said: “One of my joys is to involve total strangers in the flying, to let them experience the feel of the kite. Sometimes they get involved, sometimes not. This does not bother me. I feel that someone’s life is incomplete unless they have gained some understanding of what kite flying is about and you can’t get that without holding the line for yourself.”
