It’s so encouraging and lovely to read all your comments and advice, thank you. I’ll bear the suggestions in mind when I see the audiologist again this Thursday.
Today I went out on my meme walk . At the time Rob suggested that I could repear the walk in the summer. So I have. Marnie talked about mindful meditation, being aware of the present moment. I decided to apply this to my CI training. Instead of being a buddist monk and chewing thoughtfully for three hours on one grain of rice I would be a middle aged deaf woman listening thoughtfully to the sounds around her.
I turned the volume up 2 steps on the CI and headed out armed with; a book for notes, a brolly for the rain, a camera for the photos, my blackberry just in case, and a bag to put them all in.
Here’s the start of the snowmobile trail. In summer it’s open to all except ATV’s – thank goodness.
The the cottage lane and the river
This bit was still frozen back in March
The river view from the old railway bridge
and the osprey in their nests.
- Cars, before they were right behind me
- The noise of my shoes on the sandy road
- The wind rattling my CI
- Birds as bells
- Osprey chicks sounding like bells
- The pen clicking
- Paper as I opened the notebook
- LEAVES rustling
