Lately I’ve been listening. Who doesn’t love a good audio adventure? This is a true story. The first sound I hear every morning before dawn is this bird with the sweetest chirp-coo. Birdie is there every single morning, chanting the same sweet mantra. The soft chatter and chirps are hardly enough to disturb even the most sensitive ears. It sounds like a super gentle sneaker-on-gym-floor-squeak Morse code. A big part of me wants to see this bird up close, inspect the nest, see if there are other chickadees. Like the muse Clio, Birdie is ever elusive, yet reveals its self in the oddest ways. I know the sound of this chirp by heart; it’s the sweetest, most mellifluous thing. But despite my search efforts, I’ve never actually seen Birdie. This bird just wants to be heard! So, I’m listening. I stopped shining a flashlight into the bushes and started to just enjoy the music.
Also impressing my ear-bowls lately…AUDIOBOOKS! My Audible .com Wishlist is out.of.control and this addiction is not waning. So many authors to discover and stories to melt into. Don’t get me wrong, you will stumble upon audiobooks that are frankly unlistenable..poor sound quality, weak performance. But when you find the right story with the right storyteller, it’s magic. I love non-fiction, comedy, classics, mystery, memoirs, anything that boggles the mind. Promise me you will listen to an Audiobook? Turn off Opie and Anthony and tune into some brain food. Got loops in your mind? Enjoy a story. Listen. Find your new voice-crush. You might be blown away. Isn’t it exciting to be unexpectedly blown away? I’ll make you a list of some of my favorites. I hereby give you permission to find an audiobook that moves you. And if you don’t, I’ll narrate one for your listening pleasure!
