On the topic of cuckoos, they have returned to this part of the world. I heard the first cuckoo call on April 14. Since it's May now, the cuckoos remain loyal to the old nursery rhyme and dutifully sing all day, which continues to fill my heart with joy for reasons I cannot explain.
Thankfully, I am not the first person in the history of the world the cuckoos have charmed. Hat tip to "houska" for leaving the following musical link on my post about tourist attractions.
