Yesterday we discussed what music we like.  Today I was wondering what sounds are comforting to you?  I mentioned before that for some reason when my computer comes off of stand by, it makes this puff noise from the speakers that is comforting to me.  Weird, HUH?
I also like the sounds of the birds singing in the evenings when it is time to nest.  That is really comforting.  And the sound on TV of an old sitcom.
What sounds comfort you?

PS  today is chat Tuesday, Hope to see you all there...

Hmm, this is a tough one...

At my parent's house, where I go every weekend, I've changed room with my smaller brother. We basically swapped, so now I have his aquarium in my room. It has a big fish in it, that you rarely see (it hides beneath a large rock, and digs itself in), but you can hear him at night scraping the walls for algae. It is a pretty hard sound, but due to the repetitiveness it is really comforting.

And music in general is comforting to me, especially the gentle ambient kind of music, like a background of harmony surrounding you.

Knuffel! Erik

P.S: I'll probably be in chat this evening

It's kinda funny because when I do get out to the park and it's just me and my son there. I can just sit in the grass and enjoy the breeze. I like the feeling of the coolness hitting my face and flowing through my hair. The sound of it flowing through the trees and hitting leaves on the ground. It's like being in your own peace away from all the busy sounds of life!

The sound of the wind blowing outside my bedroom window at night.

My dog when she barks for me to come take a nap with her.

I love the sound of waves and the rain on the roof.  Also, windy nights snug in bed.

The more I read, the more that I think. I like the sound of the river. It is constant and so calming.

Hugs, Karen

I am a big fan of listening to any kind of moving water - waves, river, water feature, rain. It makes me feel like my problems are being washed away for a little while at least.
We can respond to irritation with a smile instead of scowl, or by giving warm praise instead of icy indifference. By our being understanding instead of abrupt, others, in turn, may decide to hold on a little longer rather than to give way. Love, patience, and meekness can be just as contagious as rudeness and crudeness.
