When the Wind Blows
When the wind blows was a brilliant and starkly warning cartoon film about post nuclear war. It was something that couldn't be survived. This tree knows all about the wind blowing, it might not be from a nuclear blast but it is powerful enough to change another's nature. The tree does try to grow tall and straight but the wind restricts growth on the windward side, the sheltered side grows with little hindrance. The tree doesn't grow that way on purpose. Us humans have quaint old expressions for contending with the unbeatable, like peeing into the wind. And do you know, we still try to do it. Flow with the way of the universe it is much easier. . . and drier!
Mmmm, I think you know too much already, but what the hell. . . retired firefighter, martial artist and self thought philosopher, some say cynic, some say skeptic, some know the truth. . . . most never will.
