Today is Ride the Wind Day! No one seems to know how this holiday got started, but it is a fanciful, heavenly idea. I once had the privilege and pleasure of taking a hot air balloon ride...I will never forget that experience. It seemed so natural to be floating overhead--no motor, just the rush of the flame as we drifted along.
One of the funny things I read about this day is that on August 23, 1974, John Lennon, one of the Beatles reported that he saw a UFO in New York City!
When I was four years old my family and I went through the great Columbus Day Storm. It was a cyclone which made its way up the coast from Mexico. Though we have had some big storms since, its like has not been seen since.
As a small child, I don't remember being afraid--even as we stood in the middle of the field watching the winds flatten Grandpa's barn, whipping tons of hay into a prickly mass over our heads. I watched the winds roll up the flat roof of our home like an old fashioned sardine can, tossing it off to the side.
I've loved the wind ever since.
Have a lovely windy day and Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!
