When I am home I can hear the ocean and birds.<br />
Right now where I am I hear nothing.
This is so weird. We live very near downtown Phoenix. A house across the street has chickens. Very often, I hear them. It's a very pleasant sound and makes me happy.
I hear traffic. And buses. And music. It's nighttime, but I live in the city. The city that never sleeps.
I hear a little wind. It's late, the birds are silent.
Silence. Wonderful, wonderful silence.<br />
Well, it beats hearing a car jet down my cul-de-sac at 1 in the morning.
