As the wind whistles through the outside of my bedroom window, I began to think of all the other places the wind flows through. I thought of deserts and how the whooshing air carried the sand dunes with men on camels. I thought of the ocean, how the salt-water waves jump in the air amongst the cloudy sky. When I touched the window, it felt cold and moist. I was intrigued by how the window was cold but still protected the warmth of my room.
