Bump in the night

Night birds, especially aquatic night birds, make strange sounds-like a kid puking. The small waves, as they break over the gravel/rocky shore, sounds like the incessant giggles of a gaggle of school girls. The croak of tree frog is reminiscent of a baby breaking wind.

I'm a big believer in goals. I think they're a critical factor in achieving anything that is truly worthwhile. If you want something big, you have to plan and act big. Remember, big goals require big behaviors. But there is an insidious side to goal setting that we allow to creep in and sabotage our best laid plans before we ever get started.
