“Every pine tree I walked beneath had its particular inflection, its needles hissing in frequencies subtly different from the ones before – the dictionary term is ‘psithurism’, the noise of wind passing through leaves – an evergreen language that sounded like whispered words.”
Nick Hunt, Where the Wild Winds Are: Walking Europe's Winds from the Pennines to Provence

“The invisible alleyways of the air have twisted through mythology, in and out of landscapes and cultures, from zephyrs to howling gales. I have met the characters of the winds, and know the qualities they bring: the Bora strength and clarity; the Foehn destruction and depression; the Sirocco debilitation; the Mistral beauty and madness. Now it seems, hoping against hope, I am about to know the Helm – if only the Bar will come – and the wildness of the chase fills me, pulls me on.”
Nick Hunt, Where the Wild Winds Are: Walking Europe's Winds from the Pennines to Provence

“Rijeka was full of grubby ghosts wandering in twilight.”
