Whenever I'm walking anywhere by myself, I like to plug myself into my headphones and plod along the pavements, tuned into my own thoughts. But of course, The Cat Empire and Pink Floyd are not the soundtrack of the world. I don't think I ever really realised that the hum of an engine and the whistle of the wind are sometimes a lot more enjoyable than the sweet descant of a guitar solo, however nice it might be. But today walking home with the chatter of the birds and the waving of the leaves in my ear instead, was nice.
