Sounds

There is no sound that can’t be done without.  I think it’s worth any effort necessary to dampen and hide unnecessary noise, to offer our ears rest from the wear and tear of the day.  I think we should have a choice about what we hear.  I think we could all do with a little more quiet.

I hear so many sounds day in, day out.  I almost barely perceive some of them, so routine and ubiquitous.  Exhaust fans, far away chatter, cars, my own breathing.  Some are a pleasure.  Birds, leaves rustling, song, laughter.  Some I can’t stand at all.  Alarms, sirens, sneezes, televisions.  Sometimes, it’s tiring to hear so many things.  Sometimes, I just want nothingness.

But no matter how many sounds I hear all day long, I savor each and every sound you make when we touch.
