Which Way the Wind Blows
Unlike her, the wind knew where it wanted to go. It swirled and puffed and gusted, spinning the vane round – first North, then South, followed by a quick turn to the East.
The wind didn’t think about the rightness of its path; nor look back to where it had been. The wind simply blew.
The wind paid no heed to labels or predictions or expectations. The wind simply was, in this moment. Not questioning or faltering or wavering.
She suspected she could learn a thing or two from the wind.
