The Top of Our Mesa has Wind, Lots of Wind —- Wednesday, April 15, 2020

One of the things I had to get used to those many, many, many years ago, when I married Terry and we moved to where we live now

Was getting used to the wind.  For you see I grew up in the middle of an orchard,

Here, where we live, the wind starts in March and stops around the 1st week in June

It’s not constant —as in never stopping, but it is consistent

Sometimes the wind is playful, sometimes whipping the words out of mouths

Sometimes vicious  and mean and ugly, and sometimes just a whisper like lovers’ talk…soothing and caressing, singing a lullaby

I quickly found I love the wind. I love standing outside in the wind and letting it murmuring, or slam into me, hearing it moan, and cry in the treetops.

Wind, water, earth, moon, stars, sun…it’s all a huge part of me.

But I think you already know that. 🙂

From my world to your heart,

  1. When we lived in North Dakota we celebrated days with no wind as there were not very many. We are protected here in the trees it has to be a big wind to bother us…it is cold off the lake these spring days when the wind swirls in from the East 😦


  2. I grew up on the high desert of southern New Mexico and lived many years in flat West Texas. Every spring the wind blew hard and often filled the air with dirt until the sky looked overcast.


  3. Glad you have come to terms with the wind, I still struggle with these winds in NW Texas! I’ve been here almost 37 years and still don’t like our consistent 25-30 mph winds and blowing dust! Maybe I can adopt your positive attitude, sweet friend.
