Listening to the rain

It is so different listening to the sound of the rain in the city compared to listening to it in the country.

In the city, you really don't get to hear much of the sound when it rains. In a city, there are too many other sounds that the rain just happens. Yes, there can be times that you can hear a bit of rain hitting the window, but it is blended with all the other sounds around you.

I am currently sitting in a house in the country and enjoying just hearing the rain hitting the window as well as hitting the metal roof. It is so calming and relaxing just hearing the rain. Where we are staying, there isn't a lot of traffic, so the rain is the sound that you get to enjoy. I am sitting looking out of the window and enjoying seeing the rain and just listening to it fall.

There are so many sounds that we miss when living in a city. In the city, all the sounds seem to blend, and you don't get the opportunity to hear the different sounds separately. Taking the time to just enjoy some of the different sounds can make a difference. Being able to appreciate the quiet when it's available makes such o difference.

If you have the opportunity to spend some time away from the city and away from all those sounds, you will hear things differently. One thing you will notice is how different it is to hear sounds separately compared to just hearing the blended sounds. Enjoy the time away from the city and if it rains enjoy the sound of just the rain.
