S2 / #DearMrMountain

Dear Mr. Mountain, I respect your immense, hulking mass and your sharp, angular lines. You bring me suffering and break my will, but I like that you are a known and quantifiable enemy. Straight up. A benevolent oppressor, kind enough to let me know when the abuse will stop, humane enough to reward me with a free-wheeling downside.

...and you, Mr. Wind, you are an evil prick. An invisible, faceless assassin. The sniper in the bell tower. The black ops of the natural world, slowly and steadily masterminding my downfall. I do not like you. But I won’t say it out loud as I know how curses travel upon your currents. And how on hearing them, you’ll change your angle of attack just to spite me. No, I know you Mr Wind, so I will humbly bow my head into your wretched breath, grind my way home, and keep on peddling in defiance.
