Birdsong especially blackbirds, reminding me of English gardens…choral music, Celtic music and song…laughter…the dogs playfighting…streetlife in our small town…Tibetan bells…
Water fountain sounds on Alexa.
My heartbeat and the sound of waves when the meet at shore in a silent environment(mostly at sunrise and night)
My best friend and I broke up yesterday. It was kinda hard, he is still my friend but no longer someone I will tell everything to. What helped me feel better was going out and talking to friends and stuff and also listening to a lot of music.
Wind chimes, the lapping of the water on the shore at the lake, the purring of a cat.
The sound of the ocean, kids laughing, birds singing, music of almost all kinds ( not death metal) . 🙂
More and more, it’s the sound of quiet. A light breeze rustling the leaves. The soft murmur of flying insects. The songs and calls of birds.
Church bells. My serenity bell.
Birds chirping, squawking, singing.
The wind rustling thru the trees.
Rain on my window.
Children playing laughing, squealing.
Classical music, Jerry Garcia.
Mr. Garcia certainly made a lot of good sound!
The voices of certain people who bring me joy or solace.
My new indoor fountain* and the chirping birds on the many bird videos I stream from youtube to my tv – both are for my new dear ragdoll cat Rudi and are also a great gift for me. My cat has a damaged bladder and needs to drink a lot, and we both enjoy the new indoor fountain I bought, to supplement his drinking fountain and water dishes. 🙂*”Indoor 3-Tier Relaxation Tabletop Fountain” but it’s on the carpet 🙂
Wind blowing through trees, silence along a path, the ocean waves crashing in on the shore …
I agree with all of these but would add the sounds of someone telling you good health news or there is something to try to deal with or solve the problem, at least for a while. Also, in my reply to eeevvv I said the sounds of love. That could be another question – what are the sounds of love? Maybe the answer is the same.
My first reaction was music and that has been true since I was a pre-schooler. Music can lift my spirit when nothing else works and throughout my life, it has been the major way I have lifted up others, singing in choirs, community theatre, rest homes and hospitals, saloons and sanctuaries! A close second is the laughter of a small child.
Carol, do you sing or play and instrument?
Rabbit, I was a vocalist. Mostly solo work and major roles in community theatre such as Maria in “The Sound of Music” and Bloody Mary in “South Pacific.” But I also was privileged to travel with a group that was sponsored by the City of New Orleans. We performed in rest homes, assisted living facilities and mental hospitals. Music is definitely a universal language and I can’t tell you how many times as I walked among the patients or residents of these facilities, it brought both smiles and tears to their eyes, releasing emotions that needed expression for both them and me. Medical issues make performing no longer possible but I still turn to music to lift my spirit when nothing else can do so. In-spirit-ration! Thanks for asking about my journey.
That is so interesting Carol. Thank you for your singing and posting about it. Wish I could hear you. I love South Pacific and have seen it several times in live theater. When I am distressed or need a lift, I put on the sound track.
Thank you for what you did for the shut-ins. I volunteered at a facility so I not what it means to them. Once I went to visit someone with pretty bad dementia but wow, she could she sing the songs from her youth. She knew every verse. Music is a blessing. When I did the Stop, Look, Go class on this site, I was just awed by Yo-yo Ma. Did you see the link that I posted to it some time back?
Have a good day and take good care of yourself.
Nature sounds, also music. I love celtic music, the instruments, vocal and story telling and poems
I like the celtic wisdom too. That would make a interest link for this site.
