“For example, the wind has its reasons. We just don’t notice as we go about our lives. But then, at some point, we are made to notice. The wind envelops you with a certain purpose in mind, and it rocks you. The wind knows everything that’s inside you. And not just the wind. Everything, including a stone. They all know us very well. From top to bottom. It only occurs to us at certain times. And all we can do is go with those things. As we take them in, we survive, and deepen.”

~ Haruki Murakami

  1. A beautiful image, Susan. I love curtains blowing in the wind, there’s something very poetic about them.

  2. “The wind knows everything that’s inside you.” – As I always thought so! I like his writings, but have yet to encounter this piece. Looks like it’s time to check it out!

  6. I love the image. It is so peaceful. I can feel the breeze brushing my arms. And the Murakami’s words pair with it so well.
