Discovering magic at the end of a string: Swift Current’s annual kite festival. Gazing up into an aqua-blue sky on one of the year’s longest days, I feel as if I’m inside an aquarium. There’s a giant deepsea diver undulating back and forth overhead, pursued by a school of fish wavering from side to side. An enormous multicoloured alligator lunges to and fro, along with whales, a manta ray, a huge lobster, a lizard and a family of sea horses – all much, much larger than life. I can’t help but let out a happy little laugh.
