Today was windy.

I mean really, really windy. I mean "lean into the wind or fall over." I mean "blow small freshman off-course when he's staggering to class without actually having eaten breakfast but is clutching a bagel in a bag in his hand" - level winds.

It was wonderful.

The flying leaves, a diagonal rain of orange, were one of those times I wish I was in the habit of bringing my camera with me. The fun of watching the turbulence in the air, traced by brightly colored autumn-tree-debris.

The feeling of the wind. Wind just gets me stoned. No explanation, but a natural 20mph gale-force wind is, to me, incredibly, incredibly relaxing. It's fun to feel the invisible pressure of the fast-moving air on me, around me, and I don't know why I like it. But I do.

And the feeling that a good run, and a good jump, and I could just fly... not gonna happen, but running at high-speed into a headwind is good enough for me.

The morning was perfect- comfortable temperatures, no loud construction work, nothing I couldn't tune out that wasn't nature on my way to Calculus. The sounds of others just sort of dissolved out of my awareness- and the morning just was. And at this point, I curse the English language for again utterly failing to let me describe anything whatsoever of this- and I'm really not going to try.

The difference in opinion was amusing to me- to most, the wind was annoying, irritating, problematic- to me, it was relaxing, exhilirating...

I know exactly how you feel. Especially when it forms tiny whirlwinds of leaves just large enough to fit in, and you're just lucky enough to have one stop on you for a moment. ^.^

I know what you mean by that, I love the feeling of the wind, whether it's a gale force one or just a gentle breeze. It almost feels like dry liquid if that makes sense.

An accurate description- air is a fluid.

Wait? Where exactly do you live? Because it was EXACTLY like that yesterday!

I live on-campus at Washington University, which is nowhere near the state of Washington. It is, instead, in Misourri.
