Wind’s Gotta Blow

Fun’ya no Yasyhide, Japan, mid-1830s

In autumn the wind has only to blow
for leaves and grasses to perish
That must be why the characters
“mountain” and “wind”
together mean “gale”
— Fun’ya no Yasyhide

The wind’s gotta blow and when it does, you gotta bend. It is an ill wind that blows no one any good. A cold icy wind. A hot summer’s breeze. The 4Hs of bicycling—Heat, Humidity, Hills and Headwinds. Close your eyes and turn your face into the wind. You don’t spit into the wind […] and you don’t mess around with Jim. And don’t piss into the wind or on Jim either. Wind is the most skilled hairdresser! Wind blown hair—A hair raising experience? Find some windy weather and let your hair be shaped creatively! Sometime I wonder why I walk alone on this cold, windy road. Maybe I have no one to love or no one loves me at all? How many roads must a man walk down before you call him a man? The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind. A sigh is like a wind from the heart, but when it comes from below, we call it a fart. You know, that really blows..
