Cricket Thunder

Cricket Thunder

We are seated beside a lake in perfect stillness while a distant thunderstorm approaches, offering a spellbinding concert. An unlikely couple, thunder and a cricket, combine in perfect balance. When I listen to authentic natural soundscapes my hope and optimism becomes restored. (Laptop speakers will not reproduce thunder well, therefore conventional speakers or headphones are recommended.)

a quest for imperiled Nature
an artist who never stopped listening.”
