Wind Map

Wind Map from

I’m sure I’m supposed to be doing something relevant to the betterment of humanity right now… but instead, for the last 15 or whatever minutes, I’ve been mesmerized by the white-etched lines of wind on this map of the United States.

Take a look.

It’s hypnotizing, right? (And that was before you knew you can zoom in I bet).  This site that made it – – does wonderful things helping us visualize, comprehend (and thereby possibly empathize-with) the data that surrounds and so often overwhelms us these days.  “This map,” they say, “shows you the delicate tracery of wind flowing over the U.S., … [the] energy that powered the first explorations of the world, and that may be a key to the future.” 

As you watch the artist(s) at work, consider taking a breath to pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ who found the experience of those winds less beautiful than I have.
