Sing along... These are a few of my favorite sounds...

Keeping visual treats and DIYs aside for the day, I got thinking of a few sounds which tickle my ear each time I hear it.
I get thinking, or just close my eyes and smile when I hear ...

The sound of feet on dry leaves

The last drops of water dripping down after a tap is closed

The sizzling sound when I pour tadka into curry

The sound of crickets in the backyard

The roar of a river at my window, even if I can't see it

A loved one purring lazily in the morning when I try to wake him up

The sound of vehicles starting up after a terribly long traffic jam

The occasional train that passes by my house. It doesn't disturb sleep anymore!

Far-away loudspeaker-music that comes in with the wind

The sound of fire crackling through burning firewood, heard it?

A fan coming alive after a long power-cut in summer!
...

Some take me far away, some remind me of childhood, some just make me enjoy the moment.

What sounds do you heart?? Did any of these give you a sense connection?
Do share your moments...

    The sounds that I can hear right now:
    Tea pouring,
    Spoon tingling,
    Sipping,

    then, in no particular
    - windchimes...all kinds of it- ah! so lovely
    - sound of a baby's knees and palms go thud thap-thap-thap-thap as she crawls
    - live orchestra (or any music performance- not on tape)- it just gives me goose bumps.

  19. Wow....I tried to feel every sound as I read, and it felt AWESOME!!!!
    Some more for me : tides slashing on the shores
    rain clattering on the windows
    the 'guj guj guj guj' in a classroom when the lecturer just went out
    birds flapping their wings
    aah...I can go on...
    but really what a soothing relief your blog on this was!
