Day 24 → whatever tickles your fancy

Why is John Steinbeck an amazing writer?

During a night the wind raced faster over the land, dug cunningly among the rootlets of the corn, and the corn fought the wind with its weakened leaves until the roots were freed by the prying wind and then each stalk settled wearily sideways toward the earth and pointed the direction of the wind.

from The Grapes of Wrath
