The wind is blowing. Outside my apartment window the trees in the copse behind the parking lot sway. It’s beautiful to see. Each tree has a different level of pliability. Some sway a lot, others not so much. Their branches and summer green leaves make mystical shapes as they bend to the wind. They bend toward, then away, from the tree next to them, in a dance that reminds me of American Square Dance.

I guess scientists still are not sure what makes the wind blow. Like the writer of the Epistle of James in the Bible says: “The wind bloweth where it will, and no man knows from whence it comes or whither it goes.” There is still much in nature which is mystery. Science hasn’t figured it all out. Wind is a great example of one of these wonderful and mysterious phenomena.
