Hello there again, as I sit typing my new blog entry, the wind has started picking up here in Kansas City and it appears it’s going to be a “windy” and warm week!
It’s windy for Kansas…I remember when I lived on Maui it seemed like it was windy every day, but of course it’s all in how you look at things. Since that time in my life, I’ve learned to love the feel of the wind.
I like that it brings in new air, cleans out out the old. It blows the leaves away. It can clean the streets. Yes, there are some negatives to a windy day, but I’m a wind “fan” (no pun intended) and despite my hair getting a little messed up I don’t have a lot against it.
So if you’re in the Kansas City area like I am over the next few days be prepared for a city “cleansing”. Mother nature is bringing a little air from the south and will keep the wind tunnel on high for a few days. I think I’ll wait to ride my motorcycle until next weekend!
Speaking of Maui, and on a totally different subject: I’ve been invited to participate in the Oahu Marathon in December of this year. 26 miles, yikes. The catch is that I’ll be part of a three-man team wearing full firefighter bunker gear and oxygen tank, boots and face mask. It’s a demonstration and a commitment to all of those who lay their lives on the line to save ours. And it’s crazy 😉 Unfortunately I’ve already got a vacation planned for the same week so I’m going to have to pass this year…I’ll have to feel the Hawaii wind another time!
Have a good week, stay safe, take care, Ryan
