Still in Cumbria, wandering around the beautiful countryside. It is truly amazing what kind of different noises one can hear: instead of near absent cars there are huge arguments and constant discussions going on in those surrounding fields: cows and particularly sheep seem to have a lot to talk about and I have never realised that until this visit in Cumbria. Male sheep have beautiful sonorous voices, they exude authority and females seem to accept that. There is also a #metoo movement going amongst sheep, but the males with their low voices have managed so far to keep it at bay. ( “Nonsense, we are all the same, we are all sheep !”, one senior sheep, grazing opposite our house stated last night ).
Whatever…walking in this English countryside is a real treat !
