    Relating to this, Sheila, even though spring peepers do not peep in Europe, unfortunately. One imagines their very name would bring a smile to anyone listening.

    If the sounds of nature were to over-ride the commotion we humans make, maybe even soldiers on both sides of conflict would realize there's more to life than hatred and killing.

    What a beautiful response! Thank you.
    Calling in what sound like large groups, for hours at night, the small frogs make a grand chorus. I look forward to their return in the early spring.

    heart songs
    quiet terror's rhythm

    __Grand Sheila, reading and feeling your *word thoughts* again_! My humble echo.
