Nightingale

I am more a dog-person than a bird-person. I think of dog as people, or at least most of them as little people, you know? But I’ve grown to realize that it is not a dog but a bird to which I am spiritually bound.

Do you remember? When you were little, about the sounds that would make you happy and jump up and down at the window-sill, holding the dusty bars of the window; a little happy imp.  But of all of those sounds, the sound of a Koel is, to me, one of the most beautiful, peaceful sounds in the world. Second to none.
