10 Sounds I Like

10 Sounds I Like

Sounds. They can bring us immense pleasure or they can annoy the snot out of us. Interestingly enough, the same sound can bring one person pleasure, and another pain. Let's focus on the pleasurable sounds in this post (well, pleasurable to me); hopefully they're enjoyable to you as well.

10 sounds I like:

1. Air conditioning. It's so calming to me. Wherever I'm at--even if it's not at home--the sound just makes me want to take a nap.
2. Rain. Hard rain. See comment on number one for action!
3. Music. Music I like, of course. This is extremely diverse for me. If you're interested in seeing what kind of music that is, visit my MySpace profile.
4. Wind blowing in the trees. It's extremely calming.
5. Laughter. Hearty laughter. I'm talking from-the-stomach-can't-control-myself laughter. This is probably my favorite. Laugh on, my friends, laugh on. (This was also on my list of "10 Things I'm Fond Of".)
6. Crackling fire. I don't get to hear it too often because I live in florida, but I still love it.
7. The ocean. So peaceful. I always enjoy it from a distance though; I don't go in the ocean.
8. Acorns cracking. I like to step on them. Stomp on them. Crush them with the heel of my foot. I just love hearing the sound of acorns cracking.
9. Purring cats. Now that's the sound of satisfaction.
10. Cheering crowds. Particularly when it's at a concert and the fans are screaming for an artist they love. I've never witnessed this more than at a Madonna concert.

Rain, I love the sound of rain. I can sit on a patio and listen to the rain on the roof. Pitter Patter. Pitter Patter. Pitter Patter. Good times :)
