Are The Birds Singing Louder?

This is Deputy Digby Pancake. Is it just me that doesn’t feel like doing much of anything lately?

Everyone seems to be at their own house. It should be time to catch up on projects. And work. And exercise. Yet, motivation is only directing me to the refrigerator. I wonder what else is in there today. Whatever it is, it’s calling my stomach and my name real loud.

What is calling your name? Is it that lasagna you made? I heard about it. Is it those five bags of potato chips that were supposed to last a month? I heard about that too.

But what you may not realize is that other things are calling your name right now. But can you hear them?

As our world gets quieter with less traffic and commotion, the birds and the animals are enjoying it. Have you noticed? The birds are singing…well…louder.

I can even hear them singing over the song of my stomach.

Yes. It’s true. If the birds sound louder, it’s because they are happy. Content. They know nothing about a virus. But do you want to know a secret? Birds sing louder normally to hear themselves above the noise of airplanes. Or traffic. And so I wonder. Are they louder, or are we hearing them the way we were always meant to?

When others around us are joyful or happy, we notice. But we also may not notice it’s contagious to us. We feel better. Their mood makes our world brighter. Even if we are in the darkness.

So be a bird today. But don’t eat like one. Sing as loud as you can. Sing joyfully. Dance like no one is watching. Because guess what? No one is watching.

Maybe you’re not feeling like yourself because you are used to the chaos and commotion and loudness of the world.

But use this time to hear yourself and be yourself. And when you head to the fridge, can you grab me some ice cream?
