wind blown...

Lady with Hat Blowing Off in Wind Art Print

the wind blows a lot in omaha.

i mean a lot.


in the winter the wind is biting. chills you to your core.

in the summer the wind is hot and sticky, it brings only more heat, no relief.

most of the time i find it a nuisance. who wouldn't?

it messes up your hair, it blows your papers around, and forget wearing a skirt above the knee.

today it was extra windy. southern warm wind, but lots and lots and lots of it.

and i didn't hate it. i drove with the windows down, and let it whip at my face and hair wildly. i breathed it in... and it sort of blew my day away. my work day, the part of the day that people like to have blown away. all the ugly parts, all the stressful parts, all the confusion. blown away. so i could go home and enjoy the rest of my day with my husband. and today, i kind of liked the wind.

Strange Wind
by Shel Silverstein

What a strange wind it was today,
Whistlin' and whirlin' and scurlin' away
Like a worried old woman with so much to say.
What a strange wind it was today.
What a strange wind it was today,
Cool and clear from a sky so grey
And my hat stayed on but my head blew away-
What a strange wind it was today.

"It is the set of the sails, not the direction of the wind that determines which way we will go."
Jim Rohn

"The older you get the stronger the wind gets - and it's always in your face."
Pablo Picasso


  1. I loved our wind today. Took two walks in it and also heard it whistle in our fireplace. Something about it wasn't menacing at all, even though it did blow open our gate and Tucker tried to sneak out.

  2. Glad you were able to blow the ick away and enjoy your hubby and evening! That's always the best part of my day, too! :)

  3. I love the wind....especially a warm one.

    When I was on the ranch. Oh my goodness.

    Steady gale the whole time.

    But what the wind does to pictures.....glorious.

  5. Please tell me you're going to announce the ultrasound results! I remember the vivid dreams I had in pregnancy; once I dreamed my stomach had a window and the baby kept floating in and out of the frame of the window, but never enough so that I could see if baby was a boy or a girl!

  6. The wind drives me nuts cause it makes golf even more difficult
