Music, when soft voices die, vibrate in the memory ~ Byron
As if the pictures in Sensual Living weren't enough to strike an emotional chord in your heart, Llyod's descriptions of the sounds we have known all our lives are also vivid and powerful:
the gentle applause of rain
voices of people we love
a cat purring
village church bells
the clang of a toaster popping up

What sounds do you treasure?

giggles of 2 little girls coming from the closet.
sound of my husband humming when he's into a project.
birds singing in the morning.
the soft hum of silence.

Lindsey said...

children laughing
the whir of a sewing machine
crickets in the summer
bees buzzing
but the very best is: the sound of snow falling at night.

Lindsey, I love your favorite sounds!

the train rushing past my first apt.

I live a few blocks away from a train now ~ I never get tired of that sound! Thanks for the reminder!
