The Sounds of Nature


The warm days are here. The frogs are singing, in harmony with the crickets, going along the waves of the moon. Once in a while, an owl joins in. The nightingale also, day and night, is longing for his mate with his amazing tunes. 

Two local women are on their evening walk in nature. Along their path, they meet two Parisian women here on vacation. They chat for a while. 

 Then one Parisian asks: “What is that noise that we hear every night that keeps us awake?” 

The two local women think and think: “We don’t know what you are talking about. We don’t hear any noise.” 

The Parisians are persistent: “There, we hear it right now! What is that noise? It’s been driving us crazy and we’ve been sleepless for a few days!” 

The local women open their ears: “We don’t hear anything.” 

Until one of them realizes what this is about: “Could that be the frogs?” 

There it was! The frogs! Some can get so used to them that they cannot hear them anymore. For others, they drive them crazy. 

Beauty truly is in the eye (or the ear) of the beholder!

    mmm, that we’re so used to our own truth that we cannot even recognize it unless pointed out to us either by a guru or by investigation, to be brought back to where we natural begin.

    Beautiful story Cathy!

      Yeah Nick, there is always something to learn from people, the mirror and awareness again … and the frogs!

      Have fun (if it’s possible) in your studyings, Cathy
