And when there is peace and silence and everything is still, it does take me by surprise and I think "what is wrong" ?.... because there is always some sound.
When I think of the word summer I think of sun, sand and surf. When I think of summer sounds, I think of what I hear when my window is open and LIFE just happens in my backyard.
It's relatively quiet as I type this. Almost eerily quiet .... but it's not like this all the time.
On any given day in the summer I will hear: sirens screaming, crickets chirping, frogs bellowing, dogs barking, fire works booming, train whistles tooting, cicadas buzzing, music from a radio or a teenagers' car blaring, lawn mowers rumbling, wind chimes dinging, a fountain rippling, airplanes soaring, birds singing, cars rambling, motorcycles roaring and sometimes I hear the laughter of children playing, the ice cream man dinging, a hot air balloon whooshing and a helicopter hovering.
Week #36 - LIFE'S simple pleasures - sounds of summer
Just like stopping to smell the roses... have you ever just stopped in place, taken a deep breath, silenced you mind and body... and listened to the sounds around you? I am so blessed and fortunate that I can hear those sounds ... the sounds of a beautiful summer!
Not only is the sun SHINING and the birds are singing... but it's also time for me to go and Brighten Someone's Day!!!
