On a quiet stroll, when there isn’t any wind to drown out their sound, listen to the bird calls as you walk along. You will walk from one original bird call to the next, and each will be unique and musical. If you keep your mind focused on the bird songs for the entire walk, you will hear quite an orchestration of musical notes. How many of these musicians would you overhear in an hour’s stroll? 25? 50? 100? But you have to stay focused.

I am a voracious reader and also enjoy writing. I often have a very different point of view than the popular one. I do see value in debate, and thought it might add to the public debate on controversial issues if I were to express my contrarian opinions. I also started keeping my poems recently (I've written little pieces my whole adult life but never kept any); and I've been a photographer now for over 25 years. So I will be adding an occasional poem and hopefully interesting photograph to the blog along the way, just to spice things up. View all posts by Henry Barnard
