Where smoke goes depends on air. Air carries the smoke. No smoke, air is still there. We only notice air when smoke mixes with it. Don’t blame air. The fault is with the smoke. Take cigarettes. We see smoke on the exhale. Take cold weather, we see breath on the exhale. Don’t blame air for these experiences. Air is innocent. Air gets the blame for pollution. Air is very compassionate and will hold just about anything lighter than itself. The reason for all this is simple. We don’t notice air because it’s invisible. Clouds…yes, air does a nice job with water. Fog is air holding water near the ground. Who get s the blame/ AIR. The trick is to appreciate air when it is clean and clear. Twelve times a minute, we inhale air. Do you notice that?. Not really. Air is taken for grant it when there’s no smoke. Air takes the blame for noise. Air supports bird flight, airplane flight, air helps sail boats. All this means that when there’s a huge dust storm, air takes the blame. Give air a break. Air needs us and we need it.
