Do you hear what I hear?

What do you hear at this moment?

Stop and listen.
Be aware of your surroundings.

Me:
Disneyland fireworks
Iron Chef (food channel)
Cars driving by
My bird walking across her cage
Refrigerator hum

I find it amazing the sounds we take for granted and are so used to hearing.

I'm hearing Hiroshima on Internet radio, the wash machine on a spin cycle and the ever present ringing in my ears. But it's nice just to sit more than a couple of times a day and just be quiet letting the sounds of nature or man . . . take me away. . . .

Because of my airforce back ground I pick the different sounds of aircraft.
But just to sit back for 5 minutes and listen to the sounds we take for granted and imagine if they weren't around.

I hear the hum of our Playstation, the tic-tic-tic of a clock, my daughter (who is napping) coughing occasionally... and the sound of my own heartbeat thumping in my ears :)
