Yesterday I went to visit the Singing Ringing Tree, a wind powered sculpture, just a 30 minute drive from where I live.
A clear, sunny and windy day, perfect conditions for listening to the haunting melodies it plays.
When I arrived I was so pleased to find no one else around, I had the tree all to myself!
However, there was no sound! I waited, anticipating it would begin soon, but absolutely nothing!
Feeling slightly frustrated and let down I decided to go for a walk. The surrounding area is amazing with spectacular views!
As I walked I realised I had set myself up for certain expectations. I wanted to hear the haunting melody to see what impact it had on me.
My expectations were creating frustration and disappointment!
Choosing to let go and trust that I obviously didn’t need to hear any melodies, I simply allowed myself to enjoy the peace and beauty that surrounded me!
