My days are filled with overheard conference calls, keyboard clacking, iPhone and Android bleeping reminders, phone ringing, and mouse clicking. I’ve had enough of that. These are my 5 favorite sounds that I’m looking forward to hearing more of:
The pop of wine corks
Hands down one of the best sounds ever. Living cheaply doesn’t mean living poorly. We will drink wine. I remember arriving early to a Champagne tasting once and hearing the preparations — pop, pop, pop! — it was intoxicating.
The rustle of leaves
In the fall, I could just kick my feet through piles of leaves for hours. In fact, I just might.
The crunch of peanut shells
Just got home from a Cubs game and I love the sound peanut shells make when you step on them. There’s a bar in Madison, WI we need to return to that serves peanuts as a bar snack. You throw the shells on the floor. It’s wonderful. And we need to go to spring training games in Arizona.
The wind through aspens
This is the most relaxing forest sound there is. There’s a smell that goes along with it that’s wonderful too.
The crashing of waves
Obviously on the list. I’m looking forward to camping on the beach when we can. You can never be too close to the surf — except during a rising tide.
