Day 2640: What I’m hearing

What I’m hearing, whenever somebody asks me what kind of animal I might want to be, is myself answering: “I would want to be a duck, because ducks are comfortable on land, on water, and in the air, they mate for life, and they make extremely silly noises.”

What I’m hearing, these days, are people are having more difficulty hearing because there is so much competing noise out there about what people need to do to be healthy and to survive.

What I’m hearing is that it’s time for me to share my first photo of the day:


What I’m hearing is that I will be able to conduct my Coping and Healing groups using a remote telehealth platform, starting today.  What I’m hearing is that several different people will be participating in today’s group.


What I’m hearing is that people are nervous when they do anything new for the first time.  Who looks particularly nervous in that photo above?  I’m hearing that the duck is a little anxious.

What I’m hearing is that the supply chain of food is okay, for now.


What I’m hearing is that sometimes happy coincidences happen, as you can see from last night’s teabag saying:


I’m hearing that the power of music can help us stay sane during these nutty times.

Here‘s “I Heard it Through the Grapevine” performed by Marvin Gaye, a capella (because we’re all making do without all our usual supports, these days).

What are you hearing, here and now?

I hope you’re not sick of hearing gratitude from me.

  1. Doing something new is becoming a daily activity for everyone these days. And yes, I think I would also like to be a duck!

  2. I’m hearing traffic streams continuing to pass our house.

  3. Once when I was training someone at work he said, “So if it walks like a duck and talks like a duck…” He paused and then we both simultaneously said, “It’s not always a duck.” Sometimes life is complicated like that but listening helps.

    Oh, Ann, I’m very happy to hear that you’re resuming your groups in a new and safe way. I’m hearing hope.

  5. We are allowed to go for one walk each day.
    What I’m hearing is the song ‘I’m gonna be’ (500 miles)

    • I’m hearing that social distancing can be much less than 500 miles! It’s always wonderful to hear from you, Peter.

  6. I hear the TV except when I am speaking to mum each day

  7. I hope that your experience today with telehealth technology was very good. I have heard good things about it.

  8. i’m looking forward to hearing the voices of my little kinder next week when i start connecting to them online. i’m hearing the voices of family and friends checking in with me, and showing me they care. i’m hearing the sounds of love.

  10. I feel like I’ve been told to be a bear, Ann. A hibernating bear.

  11. I hear you Ann. So glad you are well and tuning in 💕

  12. There are times I wish I was a duck too.
