    I Like To Hear My Thoughts

    I really do not like the sounds of the hustle and bustle of the city. I certainly do NOT need to hear activity around me to prove that I am alive. I especially do not like to be distracted by noise and confusion and emotional vomit; I would rather have the sounds of Nature and...

    The Woods

    I have always been a person who has loved being outdoors. I was born and raised in the city, and had very few chances to get away from the noises and the danger of city life. But there were a few wooded places I could wander through, and did. I loved the redwoods of northern...

    What Have We Done?

    Besides seeing a robin, for me the heralding of spring is in the sounds of the peepers. Just knowing thousands of tiny frogs are courting a mate makes my heart warm. I wish that we appreciated the beautiful world that was given us instead of raping and pillaging until it is all...

    A Country Girl Forced to Move to the City.

    From the day I was born till I was 6 years old I lived in a little town. Everybody knew everybody. You could walk to all the places. Only time people drove was either to go to work or the hospital. Even when we went to buy our groceries we walked. It was nice. Kind of. Families...

    Not Really Silent

    Probably better to say I prefer the sounds of nature and nature usually isn't that quiet. You've got the sounds of birds almost everywhere, flowing water, crashing waves, the wind, insects.... The noise in the city will drive you insane, car engines, people yelling, equipment...

    Listen Children

    I used to work for an outdoor education school teaching 11-12 year olds. Whenever I had the chance free from teaching I would ask my groups to find a nice comfy spot and just listen. We would sit sometimes for up to a full minute just sitting and listening. We were nestled in...
