Little noises

The street sweepers wake me up every Monday and Thursday at 4am. I hear them coming a few K's away. I'm a light sleeper and once I'm up, there's no going back. I guess that makes me a sort of defacto morning person.

If its not the sweepers, it'l be something else. Every plug emits a high-pitched scream, I can turn off the ones in my room but have no control over the others. Lightbulbs hum. The lady downstairs snores. My feline is a royal nemesis.

Simon and Garfunkel were wrong about the sound of silence. Even if its only the dull "lub-dub" of your own heartbeat and the ringing in your ears, you can never escape sound. Total darkness is easy to experience, silence is not.

Life is a noisy process.

Fluorescent lights make noise and I can hear when one is about to burn out. The world is noisy and distracting!
