Free like the wind

My niece is spending time in Mexico free as a young bohemian can be. I saw her above photo, gleaned from the backstreets of some sleepy town, at the same time I was reading "The Outsider" by Colin Wilson.
A common theme in the book is that the outsider has an inextinguishable desire for freedom. As a matter of fact, bohemians are outsiders.
So was philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche who said after witnessing a particularly windy storm from a hilltop vantage:
"Lightning and tempest are different worlds, free powers without morality. Pure Will, without the confusions of intellect - how happy, how free."
