It’s amazing how just a week can change almost everything about the seasons. All kinds of buds and shoots are getting ready to open on different plants, and the birds are just going crazy singing and looking for nesting sites. I’ve enjoyed listening to the little Spring Peepers, especially in the evening. I’m trying to find a simple video tool for the sidebar, but in lieu of a more streamlined player the Google Video service works pretty well. Here’s a short still video with the sounds of Fox Haven in the evening a few nights ago.
Maybe it’s not the most exciting thing in the world, but after “listening” to the cold silence of winter it’s pretty neat to hear such a change in March. I also think you have to reach a point in life where you understand the world is so much bigger than we are. The times we realize that we are just a small part of the whole, and are humbled to the change that takes place with or without us. And being able to slow down enough to enjoy the simple moments can be a challenge for many people. It’s worth it.
