Today is windy and warm and wild
and I walked to Rostrevor St
to have a free hearing test.

I am told my hearing is almost perfect apart from some very high pitched sounds
that are no longer within my hearing range..
hence the observation in my journal below
that I may never again hear a spider sing
(did I ever?)
but the tinnitus in my ears means I can hear
cicadas sing all year round!
I found the cicada wing on my bathroom floor this morning..
and wrote my journal page while having a flatwhite
in Habit Cafe
before walking home.

 look at this
I am writing
beneath my photo!
Thank you Blogspot!
At last.
I can use spell check too!
It feels like a happy day!

I think maybe I overdid the story words..
too much caffeine?

  1. What beautiful, celebratory posts Joan. I'm just catching up after having my nose down, trying to meet my writing deadline. Your blog is always a delight. It must be the season for free hearing tests because I'm having one on Monday.

  2. Or perhaps unbridled joy?

    I would not be the least surprised that you could, and can, hear spiders sing.

  3. Too funny -- I also have tinnitus and I also have chosen to think of it as cicadas!

    But now, oh now, I long to hear the spiders sing!

  4. Just the thought of haring a spider sing is a lovely thought indeed, Joan.

    Glad to see you can post below deck again. Yea!
