The Sound of Nature

I think that appreciation for sounds of nature is becoming a lost art.

Being as sensory a person as I am it has always played an important role in my life and for the last 7 years I haven't heard the sound of birds. Something I have missed enormously as I always had bird feeders everywhere I have lived. There is nothing like waking up to the morning songs of birds.

Now our ears our filled with all the Hi Tech stuff in one form or another.

I think my appreciation was enhanced by sitting in a rowboat fishing while listening to the frogs croak and the wings of the dragonflies. And my years of gardening. It was so serene and peaceful.
