Wind

Sometimes wind blows.
Sometimes it blows cold.
Sometimes it blows soft.
Sometimes it blows cool.
Sometimes it blows hot.
Sometimes it blows hard.
Sometimes it blows warm.
Sometimes it carries rain.
Sometimes it carries debris.
Sometimes it carries snow.
Sometimes it carries houses.
Sometimes it wets your eyes.
Sometimes it prickles your skin.
Sometimes it messes your hair.
Sometimes it is at your back.
Sometimes it is in your face.
Sometimes it does some, or several, of these at once.
Sometimes the wind lays.

Breath

When you're desperate, frantic, angry or at the end of whatever rope you're clinging to, pause and find your breath. If you can't find it, there's no sense in worrying anymore. On the other hand, if you do find it, let your breath's rhythm stabilize you. Then move forward in your journey, reminded that you still possess the cosmos' greatest gift, life itself.
