Is the sound of the suburbs boring?
Do you listen to the sounds of the environment around you? I do. For example, where I am it is about five in the morning. It is quiet. I hear a very light hum, perhaps the refrigerator in the next room. My ear is hissing a bit with tinnitus. At times my fingers tap on the keyboard keys.
When I walk, I also listen to the environment. I find I enjoy the sounds of the city, which is dense traffic echoing off tall buildings. It's interesting to listen to all those car engines. The country is also nice, peace and quiet mixed with the sounds of agricultural work.
But the sound of the suburbs I find a little boring. It is a medium amount of traffic, echoing off one and two story buildings. The car engine sound is a bit thin, but you also don't have the peace and quiet. It somewhat lacks strong character and interest. Is there some way I could find some enjoyment in this sound?
