Sounds

Things I can hear if I sit still and concentrate:

1. The continuing hum of the computer and its monitor.

2. The intermittent rat-a-tat-tat of the computer talking to itself.

3. Traffic noise- distant and erratic. It's been raining- so cars go by with a swish.

4. The pulsing of three electric clocks.

5. An occasional muffled thud from next door.

6. Once- the musical chime of next door's telephone.

7. Birds going squawk, squawk, squawk in the garden.

8.The creaking of my leather belt as I breathe in and out.
