[b-hebrew] What exactly is the semantic overlap between רוח as (1) 'breathe, blow' and (2) 'to be wide, spacious'?

There's also רֶוַח, as 'relief' - I'm assuming the overlap here would be in
the same sense that we say 'having space' (or 'breathing easy'). But what
exactly is the connection between 'wind, breath', etc. and being 'wide,
spacious'?
