wind  [n. wind, Literary wahynd; v. wind]
1. air in natural motion, as that moving horizontally at any velocity along the earth's surface: A gentle wind blew through the valley. High winds were forecast.
2. a gale; storm; hurricane.
3. any stream of air, as that produced by a bellows or fan.
4. air that is blown or forced to produce a musical sound in singing or playing an instrument.
5. wind instrument.

Wind is cathartic.  It makes me feel alive and more present.  The best kind of day always has a breeze.  Now I've never been to Chicago, so I've never really experienced the horrible side of wind.  I've been through some extremely chilly, forceful windstorms, but it hasn't been a part of my daily life. So I still think fondly of the word wind and the way a breeze coming through the curtains makes everything seem a bit better.

Tomorrow's letter is X and the word I chose has 5 letters, starts with XE.  And if you can't get it you should be flicked in the nose.  Seriously, this one is super easy.  :)


  1. Wind is great. Having been in a few hurricaines I can say one of the coolest parts was the winds. It has so much strength and power.

  2. A minute ago I suddenly had the thought that wind is cathartic. I'm glad I'm not the only one.
