For some people, listening to a recording of rainfall through a decent sound system brings peace and calm. They might even need this type of “white noise” in order to fall asleep.
I can dig that. Completely understandable.
I can’t say that the same holds true for me, however. For me, that’s not exactly how it works.
For me, it’s one thing to be listening to a lovely pouring rain on a CD or YouTube video or internet streaming site; …
…listening to the rain pound for real, coming down all around you, however, is quite another.
Rain has a voice, which can be heard. Rain also has a soul, which can be felt.
You can feel it, even if you’re inside. It hits the roof. It hits the pavement outside. It fills the air with mist as the drops ricochet off the sidewalk.
You can not just hear, but feel, the thunder as it rumbles around you.
You can feel the changes in the atmospheric pressure. You can feel the electricity. You can feel the turbulence. You can feel the tumultuousness of Mother Nature throwing a respectable hissy fit to be reckoned with.
You can almost feel the trees, grass, and other plants drinking it lusciously, gratefully, lovingly.
You can’t get these elements through speakers.
There’s listening to rain through a good set of speakers (which in itself is wonderful and has its place), and then there’s feeling its full, 3D presence around you.
That’s the difference between listening to the voice of the rain, and feeling its soul all around you. ❤
