The weather doesn't care.

It's bigger than us. Bigger than our fears. Bigger than our dreams. The weather stops for no one. It exists on its course and moves around and about and through us, but pays us no attention. The weather sees no importance in us, no difference in any of our wants. The weather does not discriminate.

We build our climate controlled abodes to shelter us from the more unpleasant aspects of the weather, but snubbing it has no effect. We curse the cold and scorn the heat. We run from the rain and start at the thunder. We create radar and algorithms and test equipment to understand the weather. We plot, and plan, and spot and report each movement. And still the weather does what the weather does. It doesn't stay away from the events we plan. It takes no notice at all.

I want to ride on the winds, to experience what's it's like to witness and move on. I want to touch faces and feel the texture of the trees. I want to run the course of the earth, over mountain and ocean, changing only with the climate of the area I traverse. I want to wipe away, wash away, whisk away all traces of where I've been and care only about where I am going.

The weather doesn't care.
