Natural threshing of corn,
Drying clothes,
Travel in sailing boats,
Windmills to grind our corn.

Unlike the Sun, it goes almost un-heralded
and by many derided as something cold, mean and menacing.

So now is the time to face up and give our thanks and to support the new technology that turns wind into energy and count our blessings.

Like so many things, because it is free we don’t really value it…

These photos are from my travels to Sweden where mills are at the heart of the community even in small hamlets – old mills used for food and new windmills (wind turbines) used for energy – showing that wind power can span the centuries to gather natural carbon-less wind.

So let’s embrace wind turbines in some way and harness the power of the wind for everyone.
