High Winds and Dust — Tuesday, October 15, 2019

We have been having wind….lots and lots of wind

Which always makes the earth seem slightly used

It hisses through everything; stretching the earth into a dust storm of wonder

We have a strong need for rain.

(Beaglie ears flying in the wind)

But not until all the pinto beans, the onions, and the hemp are all harvested.  Until then we just live in gratitude for dry weather so those farmers still trying to get crops harvested can.

  1. Such a happy Moon face in that first picture. I always love that…wind OK. As long as there’s no fire. There are 2 (or more) famous winds here, all with spectacular old names based on their direction. The 2 that effect us the most are the Scirocco and the Föhn (also, “favonio”). The first is a hot wind from North Africa. The second, I believe, comes from the Alps. Italians claim that the winds set them on edge, causing headache and nervousness. Do you feel different when there’s lots of wind?
