Nature’s Play Lists

If you are not part of, or actually creating the sound how does that affect your thought process and emotional balance?

How do sounds affect your life? In traffic, the bass that is loud enough to shake your vehicle causes me to wonder about hearing loss. The struggles for sound supremacy between stereos and engine noise, especially throttle blipping could be a battle cry of road rage.

Outdoor recreation areas you still fee safe to visit, what sounds are now common? For example, we used to go the Goose Bay Airstrip because it afforded a great view across the inlet.

Last, and for me, the final time we were there these bands were playing: Fifth wheel campers in the middle, people shooting various firearms at one end of the runway and the other end had a helicopter practicing long lining.

What sounds of nature would your playlist contain?

Tunnel Vision?
Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life — think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success.
