I am sitting in my living room watching a baby sleep and listening to the sounds of the ocean coming from a smartphone app. It is a very soothing sound to listen to on this damp and dreary day. There are also some nature sounds playing and that reminds me of what I am not hearing outside because of the rain. It seems that the birds must hide when it is cloudy or rainy and come out when the sun comes out. We are in the Autumn season and will continue to have more cool and cloudy days and have less and less colorful leaves on the trees.
Then I will need to listen to the nature sounds and imagine the sunshine–that should help to get through the upcoming dark and cold winter season.
Leaves are still on the tree in this photo.
