Do you hear what I hear?

What do you hear at this moment?

Stop and listen.
Be aware of your surroundings.

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 :)
