On Direction

 It's about direction, not necessarily speed.

Wind is often described by two characteristics: wind speed and wind direction. Wind speed is the velocity attained by a mass of air traveling horizontally through the atmosphere. Wind speed is often measured with an anemometer in kilometers per hour (kmph), miles per hour (mph), knots, or meters per second (mps)  Wind direction is measured as the direction from where a wind comes from. For example, a southerly wind comes from the south and blows to the north. Direction is measured by an instrument called a wind vane. Both of these instruments are positioned in the atmospheric environment at a standard distance of 10 meters above the ground surface.

It's about direction, not necessarily speed.

That's why I don't want to rush to the future. Taking things slow and in my own time, I can choose which way to go...

Only a wind vane isn't exactly a very handy thing.
