W is for Wind....

   I was thinking about what to post for W and a lot of words came to mind.  Then I looked out the Window and saw how windy it was today. It got me thinking of the wind and all the things I like about it.
   Wind is a natural force. It could be gentle like a cool breeze on a hot day. Or it can be strong like the damaging winds in a tornado or hurricane. I have seen both sides over and over during my life. And I still love the wind. I am mesmerized by it.
   I can sit at the window and watch the wind blow for hours. The trees swaying, the sunlight flashing of the surface of the leaves as they move.
   As a child I use to try to lean into the wind and hope it would send me flying up into the air, like Sally Fields in "The Flying Nun". I alway wanted one of those hats "The Flying Nun" wore so I could fly too.

    Even today in a strong wind you can close your eyes and feel like you are flying. You hear the roar of the wind in your ears and the caress on your body making your clothes flap and sound like wings.

Here are a couple of my favorite wind songs....

   What are your favorite wind memories???
