Excerpt from Wild Magic...
Beginning with our first breath, we take in and release the powers of air that will sustain us every moment of our lives. All ideas start first as the vibration of thought and then grow to sound. Words, songs, laughter, bellows, or howls all ride the wind and movement of air. Air currents travel the globe bringing us scents and sounds, changes in weather, and knowledge from other lands - for all living things share breath and each breath contains atoms that were once part of ancient forests, mountains, birds that soared the skies, woolly mammoths and giant moa that walked the earth. With each in-breath we share air that our ancestors shared. With each out-breath a part of us travels through vibration and currents of air to mingle with everything else that is and will be. Just as insects hum and take flight, in thoughts, dreams, knowledge, and intention, we dance with the spirits of the air and add our own song to all the inspiration of creation.
