Is My Hearing Deceiving Me?


When I stood out on my porch in the foggy morning air, I immediately tuned into what I thought was a chattering community of woodpeckers busily at work in the trees surrounding our house. After all, it's Monday morning, isn't it? Yet the more that I listened, the more I realized that it wasn't those woodpeckers at all, but a continual melting stream of snow dripping from our metal rooftop. What gentle peacefulness everywhere!
