I don’t know why I ever try to define anything that is my favorite. It goes so against my Gemini twin-like indecision! Like I could ever pick ONE movie that was my all time favorite. Noooo I am the poster-child, er in my case, woman of Variety is the Spice of Life. I can’t make up my mind quickly when I’m in my favorite ice cream shop so I always get two scoops in two different flavors.
I don’t think I have a favorite song, I have a couple. And now this?? What is your favorite sound? This is an attempt, an avenue, an opportunity to get more readers more involved in the blog postings. Blatant? Maybe, but I’m pretty up front about it!.
So please send me your favorite sound or sounds because honestly I have more than one and I’m going to tell you all of them, so you can do the same. I would love to post them and you can leave them here on the blog or email me at email@example.com.
And how does someone choose a favorite sound? Is it because that particular sound engenders a nostalgic memory or feeling? Does the sound serve some need of yours? Well let me tell you about my favorite sounds and maybe you can relate to them or you’ll get to thinking about the sounds in your life and what they mean to you.
I love the sound of ocean, the crashing of waves and the gentle lapping of waves on the shore. However best of all I like the sound of the water splashing up against a bell buoy when you’re sleeping on board a boat. That sound along with the gentle rocking and rolling of the boat surely must be a memory embedded from the womb.
I love the sound of thunder! The rolling, rumbling gathering of nature’s forces that climax in a vibrating thunderclap really excites me. There is a majestic power in this lightning-charged explosion of air and the booming, banging, cracking and crashing of thunder puts me ever in awe of Mother Nature.
I love the sound of silence. The deep, dark, thick silence that surrounds the cottage on a winter night. The stillness is secure, safe and cozy to me. Peter hates it-well, born and bred in the City, this kind of silence is totally foreign to him. He can’t fall asleep, he says it’s too quiet. I say, “that’s how it’s supposed to be”. I can snuggle my head into my down pillow and let the darkness and silence envelope me and drift into sleep…the sound of the silence filling my head until dreams replace it.
And I love the sound of a cat purring! As an adjunct to my love of the sound of silence, when in the City, I love to have Nora sleep on top of my pillow and purr and purr. She is my very own sound machine. All I have to do is rub her belly or stroke her head and she is off and running on another round of a fairly loud purrrrring. Sometimes she purrs herself to sleep before me!
And so I ask you again, What Is Your Favorite Sound? Please share them with us.
