Description: Late one July afternoon, Bev and I spent long hours at a cabin on Crystal Creek here in Roanoke cat sitting for her friend. While waiting for the cats to come home we sat, talked about nearly everything, or simply listened to the rippling water. That sound is still in me.
The next day, I composed this piece complete with the sounds of wildlife and weather.
Close your eyes and imagine you are a leaf on a stream floating along the creek banks ending in a little pool somewhere safe.

Good job of incorporating nature sounds, difficult to do so smoothly

So lovely and relaxing. Just a peaceful moment in my day. I smiled when that big ol' bull frog jumped into the water!
