The image of the title appears in a poem by the Roman poet Catullus (poem LXX, although it is the image itself, not its context in the poem that attracted my attention). It suggests something fleeting, something ephemeral, something just out of the reach of conscious perception. There are no doubt also more literal echoes of wind, water, and the natural environment, but this is very much a landscape of the mind.
