Winds of change

Photo Information
"..the wind has its reasons. We just don't notice as we go about our lives. But then, at some point, we are made to notice. The wind envelops you with a certain purpose in mind, and it rocks you. The wind knows everything that's inside you…"

Haruki Murakami (from 'Hear the Wind Sing')
