Ahhhh it is almost or it is about 70 degrees outside this day. Wonderful air with a warm fresh breeze. All morning and still now in the background I hear roosters crowing, sounds of sporadic traffic drifting from a main highway which is about 1.5 miles down the hill fill the air.
The sounds travel up the hill to where where I live, through my privacy fence, into the courtyard and then into my open screen door.
My favorite sound this day is my courtyard gate creaking. It is so relaxing. The wind causing a gentle sway to the gate sounds exactly like a wooden boat on a dead ocean creaking with the movement of the water.
I just had to close my eyes and lay on my garden swing - smiling - taking in the creak creak of my fantasy of lying on my back in a wooden boat and floating upon the Sea.
