The Sounds Of Silence

Last night I went out to the back yard, it's really a paddock.

No noise from the neighbours, no traffic passing by.

Just the full moon shining through the breaking cloud.

Not even a bird call. Just thousands of frogs calling each other.

They seem to be most active during the full moon.

Yeah, it can be a little isolated but I have the best of both worlds. Ten minutes from a coastal town and 15 from a rural town. Too far for the hoons to go :)

Yes, the frog is still around. He's been very vocal the last few nights. Made a bit of a mess last night knocking things over :)<br />

The country night sounds are just one reason not to return to city life. You must miss that GW.

Tis beautiful....the stillnes of the night. <br />
