#1. It is windy today. I can’t ride my scooter. Biking will be hard. My hair will get messed up. The leaves are blowing and I need to rake – again!
#2. There is a lot of wind this morning. A weather front is moving through. The air feels cool to the touch. I hear the leaves and wind chimes. I smell freshness.

#2. An event is occurring and I am noticing it, really letting myself experience it with all my senses.
