Enjoying the rain

It’s raining. One of the nicest sounds in the universe is that of rain falling on the water, on the earth. Also hearing the whiffle snore of a sleeping 2-year-old, another of creation’s Very Best Sounds.

My friend’s daughter is nearly 100 percent deaf. Can’t imagine a life without sound. To never hear The Beatles “Love is Real” or Joan Baez’s “Sweet Sir Galahad?” No.

I like the sound of the computer keyboard working as I type. I like hearing my niece’s texting sounds as  we drive to see her cousin. I like the sound of the eggs boiling on the stove.

I’m grateful, too, for the ever-present whoosh — the result of tinnitus, I’m told — in my ears. That might be hard to believe, but it’s true.
