Tonight I have been standing on the porch listening to a lone owl calling in the forest until the call faded and was lost in rhythmic song of cricket, katydid, and other night insects. After a few minutes all is quiet - noisily quiet.
Calm. Peace. Feeling happy.
I want everyone to hear this, to feel this. I write hoping to get others to step out on their own porch to look and listen. Even the noisiest city street has a chirping cricket or a spider busily creating a marvelous and delicate web - whether we pause to notice or not.
