I Love Listening to the Sounds of Life

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 174 People

    Today I can hear the dog-day cicadas outside my

    window as I 'work' in the (climate controlled) office. Their synchronous buzzing crescendos drown out the dull electrical hum of the fluorescent lighting and computers and I'm momentarily transported to the sun speckled canopy of my favorite old maple. My own private slice of...

    Peaceful Tuesday Morning

    I've awoken to a glorious and peaceful winter morning.  We've been getting squalls of lake effect snow for the past several hours and there is a fresh powdery dusting blanketing the landscape, and muffling the sounds of this small town coming to life for the day. ...

    February 9th 2009 Sounds

    The tinkling of melting crushed ice in a cocktail glass; the whirr of the fan in the pc; fat freakish February rain drops tapping away at the skylights above me; the oh too audible clicking of the keys on the board before me; the weather channel announcing its weather on the 8's...

    Early Retirement

    People in my family say that they can't stand to be at home, they have to be kept busy. I can understand that, and I too like to be kept busy, but I also enjoy listening to the birds, my husband is teaching me this. I never used to do this before. But now I do. we will just sit...

    Mark It!

    The first sign of spring is the song of the redwing. I heard it here, at noon today, March 8!  They seem to be arriving with the fog.

    Sound Check

    Coffee grinding.  Children playing.  Cheers at a sporting event.  The sounds of a race track.   The ocean hitting the shore.  A screen door slamming.  Water trickling down a rock wall.  A canoe paddle breaking through the water. ...

    The Still of the Night

    Yesterday, the cold front finally edged its way into my parts, as if it were a reminder that summer has yet to arrive.  Local on the 8's was showing overnight lows in the 40's in the last few moments of gazing at the blue glow from my bed before pressing the...

    A Nod to Nancy Drew

    Nancy, you mentioned last week that you'd heard the song of the red wing.  At first, I figured you must have been mistaken, for springtime seemed as far off as a distant shore.  Yet, in the fading light of Saturday's gloom, I found myself high on a ridge in the...

    Sounds

    I love the simple sounds of life...like music to my ears Rain falling, thunder, lightening cracking wind blowing through the trees, birds chirping and singing, kids playing and laughing in the distance Just sitting back and really listening to the sounds around is so calming...

    I live on a farm and love the privacy of being out away from anyone else. I look out my back door and see my horses and barn that's all. It's my way of relaxing
