Chasing The Sounds

Every day we are bombarded with sounds. Street noise, talking, machines, white noise....

We try to strain it out the best we can and focus on what we want to hear. A baby coo, favorite song, dog bark, intimate conversation.

And then there are those other sounds. The sounds that rattle around in your head. The familiar lyric with two bars missing but that's the way you remember it. The voices whispering to you in the night.

And then the new sounds. The whirring of the 7-11 slurpy machine. A power pump with a steady beat. The repetitive thud thud thud brings new sounds - music - notes on a mental keyboard flowing over your brain.

This is a constant. Never ending chasing of sounds.
