The Inside Windchime.
When I discovered the magic and joy of windchimes,
I collected several : a deep booming one from Germany,
A triangular one with three tones, the steel of which came from old Maine ships.
And, of course, the one with the vibrating, organ-like long pipes.
For several years I loved my chimes out by my window.
Then, somehow, a lovely brass set arrived in the mail.
And I decided to hang it inside by my kitchen entrance.
As I walked by, I would stroke the pipes and elicit lovely, brief harmony.
Then summer hit with 100 degrees F temperatures.
I purchased a large floor fan, serendipitously aimed toward my chimes.
Guess what? I have 'artificial wind' aimed at my chimes,
Resulting in a constant chiming inside my home!
I recommend such a set-up to anyone to accomplish
The cooling of the house as well as the music of the muses!
Such joy prevails from a basic necessity, melding into a sweet concert.
(This summer,so far, I have used my AC twice, carefully situated in the house.)
