Listening to them caused me to be more aware of other birds in the act of singing.
I even heard a blue jay burst into song while alighting on the branches of an Ailanthus Tree that's in my courtyard (as seen below).
Hearing Cam and other birds singing in either my rooftop garden, or from within the Ailanthus Trees in the courtyard, has changed my experience of walking in Central Park.
Now, no matter how preoccupied I am with my thoughts, or by what sounds I hear (from sirens or from folks playing loud music on their devices or on their particular musical instrument) while I walk in the park, I always hear birds singing. Therefore, my Wednesday's Wisdom (WW) is this, dear reader, if you have not already done so, try listening to birds singing the next time you walk in any park.
Btw, today I'm going to have to heed my wisdom and make an extra effort to listen to the birds sing — instead of listening to my anxieties — as I walk through the park on way to the surgical procedure which I discussed in yesterday's blog entry.
ADENMENDUM ONE: I'm thankful to report round one (today's procedure) re the growth under my eye lid is over... It is off my eye lid and is being sent to a lab to see if it is benign or malignant; and also to see if it is neurofibroma or another type of growth.
ADENMENDUM TWO: I am thrilled to report that the results of my growth have finally came back from the lab. It seems what I had was a Hidrocystoma, which was benign and unrelated to NF. I hope it is an isolated incident. Now I will prepare to have my secondary cataract, which is in my left eye removed in June.
