Magical Kite I wrote the title track about a day my dad sat me on the back of our old snowmobile to fly a kite. My father was a band director who could do almost anything and then turn around and teach others how to do it. The day of the magical kite, my dad somehow wrote little notes and strung them on the kite so it appeared as if the kite were talking to me. He could also raise children to dream and think big. Love you and miss you, Dad.
