Enlil will blow you away! Really. Enlil is the god of breath and wind. That breeze that blows the fog into this city, that’s Enlil. Enlil is also the god of distance and height. Not only can he blow you away he can tell you how high and how far you went. Basically, Enlil is a breezy guy.
There are so many phrases; the wind in my sails, a breath of fresh air, that refer to being refreshed by the wind or the air. The idea that Enlil could come into a characters life, and literally put the wind back in their sails. Someone who’s lost their way and the god(ess) who brings a breathe of fresh air into their life.
