Ari at A Prawn of Fate continues her hosting duties for January's Fun Monday with this question:
What is the most beautiful sound in the whole world? Once you've told us that, give us the flip side, too: What is the sound you dislike the most?
One of the common questions people toss out when feeling philisophical is "Which would you rather be, blind or deaf?"
For me the answer to that is DEAF - hands down. The world is a horribly noisy place to me. I have very acute hearing and all that noise is just overwhelming. Thumpy cars, people fighting, dogs barking, cats yowling... All of it is just so much more than I can handle. Don't get me wrong - I like things like music and owls hooting in the night, but if I had a choice between reading a good book or looking at the night sky and hearing - I'd rather be looking.
That said, the most beautiful sound in the whole world to me is my son's laughter, my son's singing, and his whistling. Even when I can't see him, it tells me that all is right in his world - so all's right with mine.
Ari and see what other people think!
Also, Molly has agreed to host for February - Her link and challenge information will be in my sidebar under FUN MONDAY!
