I suggested this topic for Studio Friday and Tine used it!! Thanks Tine!!!!
"This morning as I sat in my studio at 5 AM I realized as I had 'alone time' that my studio, no matter what time of day it is, is never silent. This brought my mind, immediately, to Studio Friday. I wonder if this would be a topic of interest?
What are the sounds in your studio? Sit quietly and listen. I am sure you'll be surprised at what you hear!"
For me, sound is very inspirational. Music is almost always playing wherever I am. It feels as if a huge void has engulfed me when there is complete silence. I even sleep with a small fan on to break that void. Have you ever heard the saying, "Silence is deafening" ? Well it's very true for me. Maybe it's tinnitis? But silence is extremely loud for me, sounding like a waterfall or static. I hate it!
So, as I stated earlier, I was alone in my studio early in the morning and I just sat there, before turning on my beloved Ipod, and this was what I could hear.....
1. The quiet fan of my computer
2. The squeak, I never noticed, that my chair makes
3. The dog, walking around the kitchen scavenging for crumbs.
4. A mocking bird outside
5. The heat going on and off
My Studio is in an isolated part of the house. I can't hear anything back there unless it's happening in the kitchen or outside. At 5 AM it's still a quiet world outside and for that I'm thankful! I think I'm going to take this Studio Friday topic and do a scrapbook page about Inspirational Sounds. It's my favourite place in my house and it merit's a page or 2 in my scrapbook!! ;)
