    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...

    While I have never lived in a rural area I feel

    a huge sense of belonging whenever I go anywhere that is rural. I live in a heavily populated area and while I do have friends and family here I've never felt like it is home. I've spent my life so far without a real purpose and I feel as though I should be doing more, yet I don...

    A Night In the Cityr

     I love going to visit friends who live in the city (NYC) it's always a fun time and have great friends who live there. However, I would never want to live there. I have a few key reasons: 1. I can't sleep. It doesn't matter where I stay in the city or how high the...

    Just before sunrise,

    before the city noise drowns them out, the birds start their morning chorus. I love that time of day.

    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 silence of nature is

    so pretty. I can't explain it but even when there are sounds it's still silence in nature. It's so calming and peaceful; flowing waters, crickets, owls...it's all better than dogs and sirens.

    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...

    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...

    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...
