Listen to the Snow February 18, 2007

Posted by TimTheFoolMan in beauty, snow, Winter.

Have you ever listened to the snow? No?

Listen. Carefully.


You have to be so very quiet that you can almost hear your own heartbeat. There may not seem to be a sound, but there is. It’s a soft “scoosh… scoosh… scoosh” when the flakes hit.

The world falls silent, as the blanket of snow muffles the sounds of the modern world. Go outside, and listen to the snow.

Listen to the Snow. Does that include Tony Snow?

Seriously though, beautiful post. Thank you.

Sorry about the above comment… I realize it sounds kinda snarky now. I’ve been in a punchy mood since I was at that britandgrit blog this morning.

It depends on how far Tony Snow is falling. The sound might not be that pleasant. 😉

What is the sound of Tony Snow falling?
If Tony Snow falls in the woods, does he make a sound?
Does the Lake Effect Tony Snow’s falling?
Or even Global Climate Change?
If so, what is the anticipated depth of Tony Snows downfall?

Interestingly, I’m just as annoyed by Arianna Huffington as I am by Snow.

On the other hand, listening to the snow falling the other night was a stark contrast to the nasty rhetoric on the airwaves and blogosphere. It was calm, quiet, and peaceful. – Tim

Yes, let’s forget politics and return to the snow. Ahhh…

Here in the city of angels
We have no snow
But God has been good to us
The rain falls and with it
There is a peace that speaks
Right to the heart of man
If only we stop and listen…

I find that peace in the sound of the Indian Ocean tide

Tim, might you reveal the title of the song? I like it.

We’re expecting a hefty winter storm this weekend. I may want to run into the snowy streets and hark it out! (until they arrest me)

Thank you Mia!

Oscarandre, I will be on the coast of East Africa over the next two weeks, and hope to hear that sound.

damewigginsoflee, if there were words and a tune, it wouldn’t lend itself to harking out. 😉 It would be sung softly in the ear by a loved one standing close by.

Thanks to all for “stopping by for this snowy evening.” 🙂 – Tim

I think I will tonight. Sounds like a good thing to do.
