The night was unusual - bird calls, insects chirping, and thereafter total lack of any other sound. We are so accustomed to the sounds of technology, that we have become dependent on it, even for our sleep. The sounds of nature unsettled us. And then strangely, calm befell us, and we slept like babies.
Nature has an amazing way of putting you to sleep. And then waking you up. We were awakened before there was enough daylight. We opened the door to the evening louder crowing of the cock. Even Comet, who was sleeping on the porch, lifted his head up from his sleep, and looked at me, a curious, yet knowing expression on his face ‘Tell me about it’. He allowed me to scratch the top of his head and settled back into his sleep.
