Ethereal Sunrise & Cricket

Aloha Everyone,

There are multiple fires still burning in the California Sierra Nevada mountain range. In the valleys of San Diego county, we have three active fires. As a result, this morning’s sunrise appeared hazy and shadowy as if the sun prefers to wait rather than to rise and shine upon us.

A cricket, about 1.5 inches jumped in my walking path. Crickets are usually amber, brown to almost black in color. They are not visually attractive. However crickets make music or they make a distinctive sound. By rubbing a part of the body located on tops of their wings, male cricket produces melodious tunes.

Coincidentally, later when I walked into the garage to use the washing machine, I heard the faint song of a cricket.

“When the cricket’s song is the only sound you hear, how peaceful the whole earth seems.“ - Marty Rubin

Aloha -- Cathi
