Calling the name of the wind

freedom - Chantal Peguiron

“Freedom”, watercolor painting by Chantal Peguiron


Tonight I had an interesting dream

I was reading the third book of “the name of the wind”

Which has not been published yet

And I witnessed its scenes without truly participating

We were in a large classroom with a professor who vaguely resembled Patrick Rothfuss

And the lesson was horribly boring, I felt disappointed

Then it turned into an exam

And students started making paper airplanes to exchange the answers

As with many dreams, it’s not very coherent when told afterwards because some parts are missing

When I woke up, I reckoned that you needed to fall down

To learn calling the name of the wind

In this moment you are suspended mid-air in a limbo between life and death

In the instant right before you crash into the darkest bottom of the pit

Long forgotten words from unknown languages return to your mind

And suddenly, you remember

The wings you can flap to master the wind

And you easily rise through the air

Riding the wind

And flying toward luminous landscapes

As though it were the most natural of morning strolls


The hardest is to take the plunge

To jump into the unknown

Entrusting heaven with your very life and existence

And losing control entirely over the course of your destiny

It’s so frightening sometimes months and years are spent preparing, waiting

In front of the open window of bright promises and airy freedom

Before finally daring to jump
