So I content myself with staying put and paying attention to my immediate vicinity — and as it happens, staying put is rather an enjoyable option at the moment, since I am currently working in Singapore, a city of great trees and parks — and so of birds and other creatures. Staying put is easier in the tropics, given the heat, but the little balcony in my borrowed flat is also surrounded by trees and bushes and I only have to sit a while to encounter all kinds of birds — though admittedly I see barely a fraction of what I hear.
Not that it matters: we all live too wholly ensconced in sight, our dominant sense, often to the neglect of the others. Listening, I can try to guess what kind of bird is in the tree right over my head, repeatedly calling out its rising, two-note cry at dusk and dawn, but never so far in the full light of day.

Cry of the rain bird
So it is that, like the lighthouse keeper, I have learned to pay attention to something in my immediate environment. It is good for its own sake. Whether it is far from home in the sweet tropics, or in my own backyard, what familiarity with certain sounds gives is a sense of belonging, becoming a living part of the local fabric.
