I Love the Sound of....

I've always loved the sound of rain, especially at night. I don't love the sound of rain on the roof where I'm currently living. The rain hits a plastic layer that makes it sound like its raining inside the house. You can hear the squirrel run across the roof. That was a little unnerving the first time I heard that sound.

Wind whistling around the house
Many nights I've been up late writing to the sound of the wind whistling around the house. It's like having an old friend whispering to me while I write. It's a soothing to my soul.

Crackle of a fire
Sitting outside on a cool evening around the fire pit, listening to the crackles and pops of the fire is another sound I enjoy.

Coffee maker in the morning.
It means coffee is on the way! It's enough to make your mouth water.

I've always been fascinated with the sounds of the ocean. It's beautiful and tempting, but hiding a deadlier side behind the pretty sounds. Though I love the sounds of the ocean, I have a healthy respect for the power it has.

Wind chimes
The soft twinkle mixing in with the sounds of the trees swaying in the breeze on a warm evening is another sound I love to hear.

The scratch of a pen on paper as I write...
This is a favorite sound to hear as I create a new story. It's an old sound that makes me feel connected to the writers of the past.
