Radio noise

We listen to music because it can soothe the soul and make us feel.

 

The other day I was in the car driving to volleyball practice and the only thing music made me feel was annoyed. Instead of listening to the word and melody all I heard was noise. Frantically, I pushed the pre-programmed buttons on my radio switching from rock, to country, to oldies, and indie rock.

 

My finger hovered over the scan button as I thought about picking a song from my playlist on my iPhone.

 

And then I stopped searching.

 

My hand moved over to the OFF button. I stopped listening to the radio and the noise and opted to listen to life.

 

I chose cars engines over My Chemical Romance. My ears perked up and I heard the wind and notes drifting from open windows of neighboring cars.

 

In the moment of listening to the noise of the world around me, I found peace.
