wood thrush

I'm alone in the wanderer's hut right now. Soon I will be going out and about, like Stevie Smith's galloping cat, but right now I'm sitting by the open window listening to the wood thrush. He's the only bird singing right now, such a clear, clear song, and so loud that when I was on the phone with wakanomori, I held it out to the window, and he could hear the wood thrush too, from across continents and oceans.

Wakanomori's favorites, mulberries, are in fruit now. I picked some this morning on my walk and still haven't eaten them. I wish you could post the taste of something--then I could leave a taste-post for Wakanomori (though his access is terrible right now and I'm sure a taste post would be bandwidth intensive.

Yeah, but I know what you mean--it would be great to be able to post the smell of a field of clover, or fresh hay.

and now about your post...so evocative, I want to be there with you NOW!

If you have taste post you think only wakanomori is going to use it? Mulberries ( I ate them, of all place, in Muscat, Oman, in someone's garden) are MY favourites too...all berries, in fact, and I would love to taste cattail pollen pancakes....

smell posts would be great too...!

AHA! Finally here's a berry I can identify with! Mulberries! Loved those... especially from the bushes in my grandfather's garden in Kanpur in the North of India.

I am glad we get to live this vicarious life through your most wonderful posts!

Thanks for all these!

Well I feel the same way about yours! I feel like I've met those children you played with, and drunk tea in that lovely cafe you went to with your friend :-)

So mulberries are a global berry. What a wonderful thought!

And I can just hear the wood thrush. Singing birds has become one of my favorite sounds....especially after a storm..it's just downright reassuring.

Have you read this quote:
"Birds sing after a storm, why shouldn't we."
Rose Kennedy

One of my favorite!
