Three Yellow Curtains Blowing

Right now the winds have picked up after a still, hot, humid day and  these winds feel delightful.  Wind is hard to capture.  Most important is the feel, it touches you and no video or photo captures that.  Then there is sound - you can hear it way away, then it moves toward you sometimes big like a train coming at you and sometimes soft, gentle.  Always an amazing sound.  that sound can be captured.
The fact that wind is out there and we cannot grab it and hold it thrills my soul.  

Wind with its extremes can do such damage. It is a power unto it self. It can be our friend the cooling winds  of tonight / or not a friend, driving rains, pushing fire, blowing down branches, trees. 

“Close your eyes and turn your face into the wind.

Feel it sweep along your skin in an invisible ocean of exultation.

Suddenly, you know you are alive.”
