Daily Post

Today’s Daily Post topic is: what is your favorite sound?

I have many favorite sounds and I will list them in no particular order and hope that you will share yours as well.

  1. Laughter
  2. The sound of rain pattering on the roof on a cool summer night
  3. The way my wife says my name
  4. Music
  5. Laughter
  6. A heartbeat as you lay your head on their chest
  7. The sound of sound of a pack of huskies as they start to sing
  8. The wisk, wisk, wisk sound of the runners beneath the snow on my dog sled
  9. The whispering of a secret into my ear and a promise that I will keep it
  10. The sound of of thunder— you hear it far away and the excitement builds as it gets closer and closer
  11. The words of a great speech
  12. The first barks of a puppy
  13. The sound of the waves crashing on the beach at night with the moon reflected on the ocean
  14. The sound of birds singing and chirping in the morning
  15. The sound of a fast car as you are shifting through the gears on a windy, mountain road
  16. The sounds of little kids singing or playing music in a school performance and admiring how hard they are trying
  17. The sounds of a hustle and bustle of a city as people are going to and fro
  18. The crashing of a waterfall in the otherwise stillness of a forest
  19. The sound of a sonic boom as a jet roars past
  20. The rhythm of my wife’s breathing as I lay awake in bed–just listening

and sometimes just silence

    I came across your blog through the PostADay2011 challenge. Nice list of sounds. I actually liked this topic (for a change). LOL. Anyway, I see you hail from the DC suburbs. I live in Herndon, VA. Small world.

      Thank you for your comment! Yes, I lived in the DC/Northern Va area in high school. My dad was in the military. I haven’t been there in years and would love to visit again soon.
