It's National Be Heard Day!
Yesterday, here on Blogger, I introduced you to someone who has come to spend time in my succulent garden in honor of it being Irish American Month.
My guest did not travel here alone, she came with a few friends, and one of them can be seen in the picture accompanying this entry. As you can see, he is a musician.
This morning he informed me that today is one of his favorite holidays, which is National Be Heard Day.
I can understand why he considers this to be one of his favorite occasions, for most musicians want to be heard.
However, they are not the only ones that want to be heard! We are in an election year and candidates, pundits, as well as pollsters, want to be sure they are being heard.
Cam, my beloved co-author, wanted to be heard too, which is why I helped her write the book, Words In Our Beak Volume One. But Cam’s book is NOT limited to her voice being heard. Words In Our Beak’s goal is to open readers to a simple understanding of the winged world and their environment.
Words In Our Beak is directed to children and adults who are curious about birds, and want to learn about them from a unique perspective. The book includes hundreds of images of flora and fauna, links to movies, as well as to informative narratives that have been created by the author.
And while Cam wanted her voice to be heard, the strength of the book comes from the fact that Cam knew the difference between hearing and listening!
Cam’s wisdom regarding the differences between hearing and listening, gives a deeper meaning to National be Heard Day.
