Listening in

One day, as I was sitting out in the backyard enjoying the solitude of nature, I became aware of a small group of grackles sitting up high in a pine tree bantering back and forth to one another.  Though I wasn’t sure the gist of their conversation, the pleasant exchanges seemed to be in harmony with the peacefulness of the morning.

“The happiest conversation is that of which nothing is distinctly remembered, but a general effect of pleasing impression.”  ~Samuel Johnson
