You can learn more about this 20 min. a Day Exercise, and why I think the experience can provide interesting opportunities for Writing Prompts, in the Introductory Post, and then follow the link, at the end of each post, to the next chapter.
Question #27: Listen to the birds. After awhile, imitate their sounds. Find out if this helps you to remember their calls and songs.
Quote to Ponder:
It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg.
We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad.
C. S. Lewis
The birds were certainly chattering away, as usual, around my Sit Spot, but none of them got close enough for me to distinguish one, from another, or politely ask them to slow down, or for a translation. ;-D
As I headed off to work afterward I noticed 2 Ducks looking forlornly down into a section of the creek with no water.
At least I assume they were forlorn, and that their quacking was some sort of commentary on the sorry situation they found themselves in. ;-D
As for the quote by Lewis...I think a lot of things about the first 38 years of my life could be called, um, scrambled, but the last 12 years have seen a new me hatched, and trying to become a tasty Omelette.
Um, Hee, hee! ;-D
