The Wind is wild today out here on this little Farm. We are pretty bare out here. I checked into one of my favorite sites which shows visually and artistically current Wind patterns across the lower 48. Yep, that's us. http://hint.fm/wind/index.html
The wind is unsettling today. And the intensity and persistence of Wind in our lives surely seem way more than Richard and I remember from our childhoods. The Irises will not do well as they will be beaten about. That was not typical of the Springs of our childhoods when they were glorious.
I wonder: Is the Earth going through a "cleanse"? Are Humans and all Life Forms going through a cleanse? Are we emerging into a new reality, something for which we have all yearned? Who knows? Regardless, we seem along for the ride.
