Sept 7

We have cool windy weather. The kind where the sky is winter blue and the sun is bright but the shadows are long. The curtains at my window are pushed out then violently pulled back against the screen in a rhythm that makes the house appear to be breathing in great gusty breathes. The wind chimes are dancing and swaying with joy. They sit silent all summer when it's so hot the AC is on and no breeze blows, and all winter when we are stuck inside with only furnace air. But in the Spring and Fall when the windows are open and the wind blows through joyously they dance and shimmer and play their own music. It makes me smile.


  1. You make the wind sound like it's playing games. In the UK the wind just makes us shiver. I think I prefer your type of wind.

  2. Hi Rosalind,

    Sometimes the wind here is exactly like what you see in "The Wizard of Oz" when Dorothy is trying to find her aunt. I've been know to cry, "Auntie Em, Auntie Em," as I'm blown about.


  3. Whereas here yesterday, I was bemoaning the fact that it was a hot, sunny afternoon and I couldn't take my son swimming because all of the pools close at Labor Day. Boo, hiss!

    After this hot, hot summer though, I must say that I am looking forward to a cool fall.
