I usually wake up just before dawn to pee. Then I go back to bed until 9:00 or so when the dogs begin to get restless. This past week I've been hearing baby birds chirping for breakfast at dawn. One morning I lay awake listening to them and then suddenly they went quiet and silence descended on the dawn once more. It's a lovely sound, that baby bird hunger satisfied, that contented silence returning.
