When was the last time you really took notice of the wind? Whether it’s a cooling breeze on a hot day, or a dust storm blowing into every crevice of your body, the wind is an unpredictable and constant, yet invisible force in our lives. Countries and cultures around the world even have names, gods, and ancient mythologies associated with the winds; in the Italian city of Trieste, there’s even a wind museum! From Italy to the Alps, Catalonia to your backyard, you never know where the wind is going to blow, or what it’s going to bring with it. Hear the soft whistles and roaring gusts that have inspired, driven mad, enchanted, and even sickened humans throughout time— from Salvador Dalí and Vincent Van Gogh to, perhaps, even you.
