My favorite place here at camp is Barber’s Cliff. I like to go sit and just listen to the world. At first I am met by silence as nature is responding to the fact that I have invaded her space. The animals are guardedly curious about me so they stay silent. My patience and silence is rewarded after about a minute with sounds. The wind if if is blowing provides a gentle beat as it moves through the leaves on the trees. The birds begin to sing again when they realize I am not a threat. It is amazing to think of all the different types of birds in such a small area. I know there are many based on the variety of songs I hear. If I am patient enough, I may hear a small animal scurrying by or even chewing on something near to where I am sitting. It is great to be invited in to nature’s song.
