An old wise woman always said : It is an ill wind that blows nobody good . I wondered about this , basking in the caress of a gentle breeze , as airy and insubstantial as a zephyr ; taunting and playful , lifting and twirling papers and leaves in its harmless , directionless pathway .
It is an ill wind that blows nobody good . The words linger … yet the windstorm has passed ; blazing a path of devastation , leaving behind a legacy of destruction … hurricane , cyclone , tornado , derecho or monsoon (a windstorm is a windstorm by any other name). And I wonder – what good could possibly emerge from such unfathomable annihilation .
