Blows my mind every time

You hear or see the wind in the trees from a distance…

…then it reaches you.

I always have the feeling I reach the wind.

I think about that a lot Aaron I love that.. I also love when I rainstorm is coming, and you can hear the rain in the trees approaching you–and then it hits! I love that :)

So your mind blows the wind?! No way dude! Thats too much to think about.


Thats a good one too. You hear it and then the onslaught ensues. I wish we had some rain right now… (dances)

The world is round. It turns me on. Because…

Song is amazing. Ever lay in a field with friends and listen to it like they do in across the universe? So epic!

@Aaron- I totally know what you mean. Something that I like to do from time to time when that happens to me is to just close my eyes and just wait for the wind to touch my skin and just embrace the feeling. Love it.
@Em- One thing that gets me is how you can see the rain falling in the distance and watching it slowly creep up on your location or if your driving and you drive closer to it until you drive threw. One thing I really love is the smell of the moisture in the air or the smell of the the wet pavement when it first gets drenched.

I think something that blows my mind is how now a days people do not look up into the sky anymore and just skyglaze or smell the flowers as they are walk by them. That personally is one of my favorite things to do :P oh and another thing that blows my mind everytime is lightning storms. I am so fascinated and love lightning storms but we dont really get those here in the bay.

@max agreed! Wholeheartedly

@aaron I have yet to experience this with rain or wind, but i have been standing in the still air or walking and then the wind rushes from behind me and then It swirls around my body in a rip tide type current, and feels as if I am part of the wind and together we are pushing against the world, this has only been for the past few months but it is a crazy feeling.

Thunderstorm where I live right now (just like everywhere else, what’s up with this weather?). I love seeing the flash from the lightning and hearing the thunder 8 seconds later.

For me, the sound of the wind in the trees does it. The sight is a feeling too.

poem I wrote:

wind in the trees
trees in the wind

wind on the water
water on the wind

water in the trees
trees in the water

water on the earth
earth in the water

earth moves wind
moves water grows trees
