I love the sounds from our night time walks:
trees rustling in the wind
my sneakers squishing on the pavement
the clank of another dog’s leash
a rabbit hiding in a bush
the whir of a bike’s tire
1 car way in the distance
a Wii starting up
the sniff of a dog nose
a gate rattling
someone laughing

So many noises and yet it’s quiet enough for me to hear them. I love the idea of living right in the middle of a big city, but then I wouldn’ t have this type of quiet. Even now as I sit in the living room I hear the turning of book pages, the sound of plastic hitting plastic (Legos), and the wind blowing against the windows. I love it.
