Where the Wind Comes from / by Bill Frakes

Here in the South the wind is created by the old ceiling fan steadily pushing a gentle artificial breeze over us as we work to edit our latest music videos. It's delicious.

The over the high Plains of Western Nebraska some of the most spectacular cloud paintings roll along, pushed by the constant winds.

When I was a child there was never a still moment. I had no idea there was a place where the air was heavy and motionless.

And then I moved to Mississippi and Florida.

When I have a chance to go home, either in my mind or actually traveling there, it's always the big sky that I think of first.
