There are a lot of sounds I like; they make me happy; I can’t really explain why.
The ice maker dropping ice;
The neighbor’s car starting in the pre-dawn hours;
The heater running in the garage;
The kids’ quieting down to a whisper;
The rattle of scooping whole coffee beans into the grinder;
The start of the Up First podcast on NPR;
My son’s breathing as he goes to sleep;
The hall wall-heater clicking on;
The beginning of Baba O’Riley. Well, the whole song, actually.
There you have it.
