Blow: (v) to create an air current.
Although I was greatly impressed with the poetry, I have to admit that when Bob Dylan proffered the idea that the answer is “Blowin’ in the Wind,” I was incredulous.
I do believe the Earth speaks to us.
I think there are obvious ways of thinking and acting that overall prosper a bit better than others. But God gave us a brain because emotions wear thin and souls can be too ethereal.
There are those who make my acquaintance who must “feel” everything to believe it’s real, and I have many friends who are convinced that prayer is the only way to receive lasting peace and tranquillity.
Yet I will tell you–that brain sits up there, begging to be used and certainly needing to be renewed with fresh insight every day .
I like the word “blow” because it has so may different representations.
It can be a burst of wind.
Or it can be an admission that we screwed up. “I blew that.”
It also has one or two naughty implications, which keep it even more intriguing.
But the answers we seek are probably not going to blow in our direction. They will require us to take a breath of air and release it, giving our brain enough oxygen… to blow forth some innovation.
