Blow, Prairie Wind.


No breeze tonight.

The turbines in one of the largest wind farms in the United States were not creating wind energy tonight, but were standing silent in the distant skyline. A mauve smoke has settled into the hills and valleys with an erie calm.






In the foreground the flag was in repose above the rainbirds soaking a vineyard.

They recently started a wind farm on Maui. I see it from the plane every time we land there. It's pretty cool to see them all spinning around.

If the wind isn't blowing-- maybe they can get a handle on that fire-- let's cross our fingers.
