August 23rd National Ride The Wind Day

If you think about it, man has been trying to capture the wind since… well… since the beginning of time. We use it for electricity, sailing ships, gliders, kites, and sometimes, just to enjoy those ocean breezes that both warm us and keep us cool. Over the years we have learned to use the wind, but we have never actually learned to control it. I doubt we ever will. It has a life of its own to some degree. We can channel it, move it, and increase it but it still has it’s own spirit. And I think that is good! In the end, it reminds us that we are not the end all and that somethings still control us even when we think we control them.

How to celebrate – Do some sport that involves the use of wind. Go sailing. Create your own power plant with a wind turbine.
