This morning our boat went through rushes and reeds. The wind in the rushes in the harbour sounds quite different from the wind in a hazel tree – it’s rather like when the flags are made of thin, long silk bands, or like when one moves one’s hand gently in hay that is not yet fully dry. One must devise a typology for the tones the wind creates when it blows through different types of trees and grasses.
Now, I can see no more trees.
