You probably remember me mentioning the beautiful sound of the Saban tree frogs in previous posts. These elusive little creatures are legendary in the Caribbean as providers of bedtime lullaby, while tourists sometimes lie awake and wonder what that sound is! The tree frogs are part of what I love about the aliveness of living in the Caribbean – so close to nature, teeming with sounds, smells and sights that embrace Mother Earth. Whenever I return to the US, I feel much less connected to this dynamic force of nature, so unusually quiet, so far from the soil and the wildlife.
