Sometimes I’ll stay up late so I can open my window and listen to the crickets outside. In the summer they tend to gather in larger numbers and create quite the ensemble, so I’ve taken to listening to their little performances from night to night. I find it to be rather soothing. So I lay in bed and rest my eyes, cool summer air wafting through my window, and simply listen. Some nights a bird I don’t quite recognize will join in with a kind of slow, somber warble and other nights, an owl or two will hoot in a quiet kind of way. They don’t really play for anyone and I guess that’s what makes listening to them so special.
