We don’t get cicadas where I am, or I might have added them to the list. The nearest I get is the subtitles on TV, “(cicadas chirping)”. I never hear them… except that every time I think of the word, at least since you mentioned it, I become conscious of my own internal stridulation.

What we do have here is birdsong, or so I’m told. I miss most of it.

You’re welcome. Hell is other people. 😁
