The following contains profanity, vulgarity, and obscenity.
None of it gratuitous or slovenly used but, rather, used
because the Big Wind Onslaught is so outrageous that
precisely this rich imagery is inevitable and, yes, appropriate.
When you, too, are forced to abandon your home to turbines,
you will see my point. Keep this image—abandoned home—
before you as you read.
Yesterday I turned 61. I’ve been fighting the wind bastards well over 4 years. Four years devoted to almost nothing else. Put a big book on hold with Yale Univ. Press for this. In those years I’ve answered thousands of emails from people around the world. Japan. Cyprus. Norway. Sweden. Czechoslovakia. Australia. New Zealand. Ireland. England. Wales. France. Canada. Many states of the Union. On and on.
In those years, which included years of fighting the wind thugs in three or four different iterations in my backyard and beating the sons of bitches (at least for now), I’ve learned some valuable lessons. I oughta write a book.
