Rain, for certain, and the occasional thunder; river rapids, the train that runs through Eugene 4 times a day; the gaggle of geese who fly by my living room window twice a day honking off key; a baby laughing; water falls; my daughter's voice (btw not wanting to brag or anything, this term end she has a 4.25 GPA at University of Oregon, YEAH); the crunch of dry leaves under my foot or bicycle tire; the clickclick of studded tires (do not know where that comes from); a voice with an accent; a cat purring; birds singing; squirels chirping; and other things I cannot remember now.

my Mom's voice reassuring me, saying, 'it's okay. i'm here. shut your eyes again, go to sleep, it's okay.' when i'm sick and feverish and scared.
the cat purring.
sometimes just the tv.
the phone ringing when i'm worried about someone.
i believe that life would not be complete sans comfy 'ol tee-shirts, the Golden Girls, and the color pink

My comfort sound is the sound of a babbling brook. I love to be by a creek and just here the sounds of the water.
...learn to laugh...it reduces stress

The sound of the coffee maker in the morning as I lie in bed trying to wake up.

The coyotes howling out in the middle of the valley at night during a full moon.

My dog eating his dry dog food in the morning as I get ready for work.

A lawn mower on a warm spring afternoon.

The kids playing in the school playground next door to where I work.

I think the reason that these sounds are comforting to me is that the signal that at that time everything it OK with my world.

I would have bet money it would have been the hiss of a beer bottle being opened.

My husband's voice saying " I still love you best"
My son's key in the door at 2:00 in the morning.
My cat's purr.
The ocean on a sunny day.
The telephone NOT ringing.
The sound of the garage door opening after a long drive.
A friend's laughter.
In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on. Robert Frost

The calm, slow breathing of my children sleeping
Crickets & tree frogs on a warm summer night
My cats purring in my lap
Soup or stew simmering on the stove
Wind chimes tinkling in a gentle breeze
The sound of my husband comming in the back door from work
My children palying in peace
