My favourite sound..
Ahh… As soon as I read this topic name, I instantly knew what to write. But then again, I thought, there are more than a billion sounds in the universe, the sound of a train, the chirping of an early morning bird, the piano, just to name a few. How can I possibly have a favourite? A favourite sound is nothing but nostalgia. For example: for a mother there is nothing more special than her baby’s laughter whereas for a child it is the mother’s lullaby.
I have many favourite sounds, but if I had to pick one, I would choose a sound that brought me peace and an instant smile. Traveling down memory lane I thought of South America and that’s when I hit the jackpot. I remembered my trip to a rainforest sanctuary park, in South America.
Ahh … The sound of rain, dripping slowly and peacefully, from one leaf down to the other! It was so peaceful!
Has anyone ever listened to meditation music; well, if you have, then you would know what I am talking about. With the peaceful sound of rain, there were beautiful sounds of those colourful rainforest birds: toucans, lorikeets, macaws etc.
After spending hours and hours in the sanctuary, I was still not ready to leave the magnificent rain sounds
But just imagine, what if you couldn’t hear all these magnificent sounds? If you were like those 466 million people; who are deaf. Not being able to hear is like being a tree without blossoms.
Hearing is a gift that we should appreciate and never take for granted.
