Have you got your listening ears on?
So what have I heard in the last week?
I heard the birds, mainly cockatoos and kookaburras
I heard the autumn leaves rustling as they tumble from the trees
I heard from my daughters and grandchildren
I heard from my mother, sister, mother-in-law, cousins, nieces, nephew and other family members
I heard from a Rotary friend who is more than happy to check in on my mother-in-law (she lives alone a few hours drive away from us), she is isolated at the best of times, but even more so these days, with little family support around her
I heard from lots of locals who are enjoying the newly opened rail trail, the fun family time, the exercise and the autumn weather
I heard the cry from my body to stop, rest, relax and obeyed the request
I heard some interesting podcasts while out walking in the forest
I heard some funny jokes
I heard some good news and I heard some bad news
I heard my heartbeat – always a good sign!
I heard some great songs
I heard from lots of friends
I heard some rubbish from around the world but I am trying to un-hear some of that 😦
I heard the words from the many books I’ve read lately
I heard Joe Wicks encouraging me in his daily workouts and I know he has the tightest glutes in the world!
I heard encouraging feedback and support
I heard the sounds of silence and it was quite comforting in a weird way
And I heard from many of you, in the form of views, comments and messages 🙂
Thanks to everyone for keeping the conversation alive, the connections we all have mean so much more in these strange days.
I hear babies cry, I watch them grow
They’ll learn much more that I’ll ever know
And I think to myself what a wonderful world
Yes I think to myself what a wonderful world.Louis Armstrong song
What have you heard lately? Care to share?
Wishing you all a great week ahead. Take care and stay well. Sending virtual hugs to all.
