Notes to the story of The Wind


Lucy Lloyd |xam notebooks


The Wind thought to be seen, in the form of a bird, by the brother–in–law of the narrator when a child. By /han≠kass’o (L VIII.-8. 6713-6724). ||goo-ka-!kui (Smoke's man, or Witbooi Tooren) told |han≠kass'o that he had seen the Wind at the mountains at Haarfontein (or ≠ko a xa) and had thrown a stone at it, thinking it to be a bird. As a result the Wind blew hard and took up dust.
