We have a set of wind chimes in our backyard.
Most of the time, especially this past summer, I forget about them. There’s little to no wind, and the chimes are silent.
Sometimes, however, a breeze will blow, and I’ll hear them. Yesterday, for example. We’ve had a change in the weather, the wind bringing cooler temperatures and perfectly clear blue skies.
Our chimes sound a bit like church bells, certainly not as loud but with the same deep, clear notes. I can’t help but listen, breathing in the calming melody, feeling it in my bones.
Not everyone likes wind chimes. I get it; the sound can be distracting, sometimes harsh, especially if the chimes aren’t designed well.
The right ones, in the right moment, however – well, they can be magical.
Here’s to nature’s music.
