Night Sounds

I love having my window open at night. In addition to having my apartment cool off, I love the night sounds that come through.

I can tell the different types of vehicles that go by just from the sound. I can tell when a fire truck is headed somewhere, and I can tell when one whooshes past without its sirens on. I love the sound after it has rained, because the car tires make a different sound.

I love hearing a train rumble by, or hearing the church bells toll at the hour. Right now I can tell when someone is walking across the yard because the leaves are crunchy.

I love that I can learn so much by using just one of my senses. If only I was better at listening in other situations...:)
