Open Windows


Finally, it has been warm enough to open some windows.

Letting in the warm air, listening to the chirping birds, brightening and freshening the house; it’s a good thing.


The Music the Wind Makes

the music the wind makes

The wind makes music.

I love the song made by the gentle movement of my wind chimes. It is a soothing lullaby, a peaceful melody.

When the breeze is soft, their sound is like a whisper. Yet, even when the wind blows strong, it is still a mellow music.

Through my open window, they lull me to sleep.

Kite Flying


People who know me well know I do not like the wind.

But at a kite festival, it is a necessary evil. The sun and the wind made for a perfect kite flying day. Kites of every imaginable shape and size soared high above: a purple octopus, a teddy bear, a blow fish, and even one our children dubbed “the underpants kite.” It was fascinating and fun.

The thing I loved the best, though, was the rippling movement and the light shimmering on these flags.

Sometimes, a little wind is a good thing.
