Birdsong, Fascination, and Breathing

Birdsong entered my life today. Last week or so I found myself noticing it a bit here or there through closed windows. But today the warm weather invited me to open the slider while I worked. I appreciated the fresh air immediately, but it was the combination of birdsong and wind chimes softly responding to the breeze that caught my attention. The melody enchanted.  It pulled my focus from the computer and compelled me to listen. And listen deeply til I emerged thinking how long its been. And further realized that listening deeply to the intertwined melody of  birds and soft chimes relaxed me. My body responded with deep yoga-like breathing as I listened–fascinated.  Welcome birdsong! Welcome spring!
