It's so loud and it's silent......
Over the last few years everywhere I go I listen. I listen to the sounds of everything. Every moment is filled with sounds. Buzzzing. Droning. Singing. Humming. Filling the cracks of time with a chattering cacophany that is flavored by location and movment. The city traffic blares loudly and jagged. Cutting through the mind and saturating the ears until you can only focus on the next sound in front of you. Pushing all the others way in to the silence of another dimension far away yet can be brough back in a cresendo of shocking clarity by turninig one’s head.
In the wild places sounds rise and fall with the time of day. Birds. Tree leaves in the wind and rushing waters. Rain and the awakening of billions of myscileum with their staccato electical impulsing vibrating the earth and all it creatures. The loud echoing calls of birds and animals searching for food and companioship. The crashing of waves to the shore, tumbing minnows and rocks that click a trumble backwards into sand and foam.
Human voices sing and chant. Prayers and screams. Conversations and the clinking of forks and knivers. Woodwinds. Strings. Whispers and secret pacs. The wounded and the loved. Lost and awakened. Stretching , shouting violently into the unheard places.
The rythmic steps on pavement. Even our dreams are haunted by the sounds of our day. The brain’s ticking and popping as neural pathways transfere information and hormomes along fatty strands that reconfigure and combine to create lucid other worlds.
All these sounds. Harmonious. Dissonate. Cancelling each other out. Influencing. magnifying. Destroying. Dividing. Disolving into the buzzing hum and polyrhymthm of this Earth as it spins through the universe howling at the top of it’s collective lungs into a void so vast it is silent…….
