This is great :) I use to love hearing the crickets chirping. The only ones I have heard in years are a few that got in somehow...then I'm freaked they will jump on me :)
I loooooove listening to the crickets. Matter of fact it seems some are serenading me at night lately from "inside" the house. Hope they find their way out soon.
As always I adore your nature writes. I do believe you love each grain of sand and everything with all your heart to write of them so wonderfully.
