50 19

"I like to listen. I have learned a great deal by listening carefully. Most people never listen." ~Ernest Hemingway

"The three great elemental sounds in nature are the sound of rain, the sound of wind in a primeval wood, and the sound of outer ocean on a beach."

I am very grateful for the gift of my hearing. To be able to listen to all of the different sounds that I love...sounds like:
the whinnying of horses in the field
birds chirping in the pre-dawn hours
the rustle of autumn leaves
music from an old fashioned merry-go-round
the splash when someone jumps into the pool
the hushed silence in a library
flip flops on the boardwalk at the beach
crickets & tree frogs on a summer's evening
the far away rumble of thunder
ocean waves gently breaking on the shore
the whack of the bat when it hits the baseball
my yoga class saying 'ommmmmmm' in unison
and my all time favorite...the sound of laughter of the people that I love
