Valerie is a 42-year-old, single, Reformed Christian lady who lives in Baltimore. She doesn't remember a time
before she knew and loved Jesus, but she does remember accepting John Calvin into her heart in March of 2000.
Valerie is a member of Christ Reformed Evangelical Church in Annapolis.
Though her career aspiration is to be a housewife, Valerie has not yet found anyone suitable who wishes to hire
her for employment in that field (or, more properly, anyone suitable has not found her), so in the meantime she
earns her daily bread working in communications -- editing, writing, print design and website management.
What Is It About Crickets Chirping...
...that's so comforting? I can't remember the last time I heard crickets, but I've been listening to chirping for the past hour or so, and I don't want to go to bed and not hear it anymore. But it's nearly 2 a.m., and I really ought to have been asleep hours ago.

So I think crickets are comforting because you can hear them when your surroundings are at peace, and you are able to listen to them when you are at peace, and you associate that with the sound.
