“Today I will tell a short story about a girl who wanted to speak to the wind. She listened with ears attuned to wind’s song, and desired to speak with its power and beauty. But the wind was not used to listening, and the sounds she made were ignored. People heard her and told her to be less noisy. The wind was loud, yet no one attempted to quiet it. The girl understood the wind’s voice and eventually it heard her. Neither one spoke with words.
