Right in front of me can be heard the songs of the many species of birds that we share our garden with. But in the distance, I can hear the sounds of a lawnmower making it's first spring passes across the neighbors lawn and even the sounds of the nearby road with all the life that it brings to our neighborhood.
Stop for just a second and listen real close to your surroundings. Try to name at least 5 distinct sounds in your environment.
It's amazing how much effort it takes to focus our awareness.
OK, that's all for today. Carry on.
p.s. Sorry about the shaky camera... I'm new to this video thing.
