She certainly does have music. I’ve heard the wind playing both the trees and the grasses on this trip, and it’s entirely wonderful. When I heard the wind in the Arkansas pines, I was taken back in a flash to my childhood love of Heidi, and my longing to live on a mountain.
Broome looks beautiful. I recently discovered a link between Christchurch and Broome http://www.teara.govt.nz/en/biographies/1b5/barker-mary-anne. I am about to read one of Lady Barker’s books. It is next on my list. I have also been trying to understand more about soundscapes, acoustic environments, geophony, biophony etc. It really is wonderful to know that people are listening to, recording, and protecting the music of the earth.
Thank you for sharing this link on Mary Anne Barker, Broome. So many early colonial women led interesting and fulfilling lives in the colonies. Listening to birdsong in nature is as uplifting as hearing a beautiful piece of fine music.
