Birds chirping and singing, fluttering forth and back
Squirrels digging and foraging in the landscaping
The children next door playing games in their backyard
Grown-ups across the fence puttering about in their garden
Cars out on the highway coming and going
Sometimes we long to get away by ourselves to get a bit of peace and quiet. Oftentimes such periods of escape can help to quiet our minds from the day's strife and busyness. For me, one of my favorite places to get away without really going anywhere, is my back porch. In nice weather, I can often be found out there with my book or my crossword puzzle. When I can be still, it is then that the sounds can wash over me, which allows the concerns of the day to finally be quelled, at least for a moment.
