What a beautiful practice. I got up at sunrise and sat by a pond near my apartment listening ing to the blackbirds and ducks. There was a song that grew and developed as the sun rose and the black birds moved from one song to the next. Over time the birds would get closer to me, and I found during my walks I could get closer to the birds before they flew away. I also found it easier to imitate the birds, something very natural would come out of me and the birds would respond. It has been raining a lot and the mosquitos where out when I sat. I would talk to them, they told me to do the 'little creature' quest to get to know them more as mosquitos are challenging beings to love.
