There is peculiar tendency for noise to penetrate , force one to pay attention regardless of whether it is desired or not 

This morning the noise outside was piercing to my ears ..singular unexpected noises seem to standout against the usual sound of nature, wind and the odd car passing by on their morning drive 

It started with our neighbour , hammering followed by drilling on metal ... A sound that I simply cannot bear ... We live quite rurally but said neighbour has built a workmanship barn in his garden and proceeds to repair cars in there daily ... 

I tried earplugs, pillows, industrial strength ear defenders ..but it still disturbs my equilibrium . 

What surprised me was the following thought: 

----------

Why do I like unpredictable patterns and lines but totally dislike unexpected sounds ?

This morning I chose to listen deeper , slower, with a linear intensity as it were... what kind of lines where these noises making ? I had only a line what would that noise look like ? 

Welcome to 15 min of my morning ...

What started of with hammering was followed by drilling, some bird chatter , 2 dog conversations , a and no less than 7 helicopters ... Hmmm 

I showed babe the lines without telling her what they were , she said " some kind of frequencies" 

Linear Frequencies ::: now what if sound was made of of wave lines... Lines that wave , lines that extend themselves , linear sound barriers , Linear fragments of sound ...

Interesting ...

I followed the above by 10 minutes of one breath drawing to center  myself again... I do find that certain lines have a calming, centering ability for me ...

  2. Thank you for this. I sat listening to the whoosh and intermittent metallic clinking of our pellet stove here on the Oregon coast this morning and drew a series of lines to accompany the peculiar sounds. I will draw them larger on paper, photograph them, and will use them in a photomontage some day. How wonderful to be able to use lines that have meaning for me. Thank you for your little gift this morning.
