Hearing & Listening

I thought you would appreciate this passage (short) from "Charolette's Web," by E.B. White:
"I worry about Fern. Did you hear the way she rambled on about the animals, pretending that they talked?' (Mrs. Arable the wife of Wilbur's owner speaking about her daughter to her husband.)
''Mr Arable chuckled. '''Maybe they do talk,''' he said. "I've sometimes wondered.
'''I don't think it's normal. You know perfectly well animals don't talk.''' (Mrs. Arable replied).
'''Maybe our ears aren't as sharp as Fern's," "Mr. Avery said."
Cam, the cardinal who used to visit my garden (pictured below here in my garden) always believed that it is important for everyone of us to have sharp ears and she spent time taking care of hers! She included her philosophy in her book, Words In Our Beak Volume One, which I helped her write.

For Cam knew as Fern seemed to, listening is crucial! But doing so can be especially challenging during the pressures of day to day living.
Indeed Cam is correct! Listening to one another's needs, and tending to the needs of our animals and the things we grow in our gardens (which we can only do if we listen to them) is the most important thing we can do during our lifetime.
