This 'List of nice sounds' blogpost over at Cornflower Books inspired me today to think about some really nice sounds. Enjoy the lists on the comments page there. You will find your self saying 'Oh yes, me too!'
Here is mine -
Owls hooting in the forest (with the window open while I soak in a hot bath.)
Eider ducks, curlews, and that sweet whispering little song the robin sometimes sings as if to itself.
The squeals of city children on their adventure centre night walk along the shore path, little crocodile of torches flashing all over the sky. It always makes us laugh to hear their excitement.
A log settling on the last embers of the fire.
The glugging of the coffee pot.
The buzz of bees in the berberis flowers beside the bench on a warm day.
The gentle irregular tapping of the boiling breakfast egg in the pan as I set the table.
A musician tuning up his instrument before a live performance. The anticipation of something really special!
Tiny wavelets lapping on the sandy beach.
As today went on I found myself remembering more and more.
The sound of silence late at night (now) when everyone has gone to bed.
Thank you Karen for all these nice moments today.
Oh, one of the nicest. Laura floating in the sea and singing through her snorkel in a deserted bay one very hot day. We were looking all around to see where the singing could be coming from before we realized. Happy child!
