1. I turn up the radio when I hear the opening notes of the "Hallelujah" chorus. T comes to tell me he "hears the drums in the music". He sits down in front of the speakers and listens intently without moving through the rest of the piece.
2. Driving up a steep hill, we have to slow way down because we're several cars back from a cement mixer. My window is open, and as we drive past an open brushy area I hear the trill of a bird singing. Wow, does it sound like a meadow lark. Makes me smile and brings back memories the rest of the slow plod up the hill.
