I was going to say how thankful I was to be able to hear a Morepork this evening. Then that post grew a life of its own. It wasn't hearing the Morepork itself which was what made me thankful, it was the fact that I was free to hear it, that I was here to hear it and that I have ears with which to hear it. They are all things which we take for granted. For so many these things are not available: the freedom, the opportunity and the ability to hear.
For those things I am thankful.
