Comfort Sounds

OK we all have our comfort foods, but what about comfort sounds? A fairly obvious one for a lot of people is the sound of rain outside. What are some of your other comfort sounds?

For me, it is the sound of the snowplow very late at night or early in the morning when there are no other sounds at all. Something about that sound just makes me feel very secure and warm.

When I open my brewing fridge and here the Bloop, Bloop, Bloop of the airlock on my Lager fermenter. I know all is well and can relax.

Thinking about this ... I realize that my comfort "sound" is actually a total lack of sound. I have mild tinnitus in my left ear, so I never have complete silence, but where I live, late at night, the silence is absolute, and I love it.

Catseye, totally agree. We live in the shrubbery because there is silence.

We both grew up in big cities, silence is wonderful.

The sounds of Dougie "Tiggering" on the next floor...the sound of your loved one's voice....this time of year, Christmas Carols, especially "Good King Wencelas", my favourite!

For me.....a fire in a fireplace and the sound of the ocean.

Daddy playing the accordion. My little sister playing the guitar. I see both seldom, and when I do see them, they don't play the way they used to when I was a kid. Others hate polkas and accordions; I adore them. Unlike other kinds of dancers, have you ever seen a polka-er who was NOT smiling? Sis played jazz, flamenco and classical when she was a child. She doesn't any longer. But I put on the great guitarists and it takes me back to when I was her human metronome.

Birds when they wake in the morning. A couple times in my life (here and in Hawaii, specifically) friends staying would actually COMPLAIN that birds woke them in the morning! Is there any better way to wake up?
