Absorbed in spirit, a local comes by and he feels like yacking his favorite clichés all over me. I smile, and turn away. Birds are singing everywhere. Sun rising, leaves stirring, geese raising a racket in the distance; I am in peace. I offer him a silent blessing and turn away.
I no more feel the need to trade mouth noises with him than to honk back at the geese.
Okay, go ahead and out me on my own website, Lydielou.
Oh, and you forgot to mention how much I love singing back and forth with the owls at night.
Geese are extremely good conversationalists as are sheep. Many times I have seen you pass the time of day with a chatty sheep or a quacky duck, although ducks do tend to be rather aggressive. Frogs like to meditate with us, chipmunks are dreadful gossips. I really shouldn’t generalise – they are all so individual when you get to know them.
