Do you ever hear things?
At the risk of sounding even weirder than usual…. I hear things, things that I know are not really there to be heard. Not crazy freaky ghost kind of things… just things that I have heard a lot of in recent times, and even when the noise has gone I can still hear it.
Example #1 – We are playing Muski Mozart’s Clarinet and Horn Concerto while he sleeps during the day, and he sleeps in the hammock in the study, and usually I sit her on the PC while he sleeps behind me, so I hear a lot of Mozart’s Clarinet and Horn Concerto. I already knew it well because we played the same CD to the girls when they were babies during their day sleeps. But I am sitting here now.. Muski is awake and terrorising his sisters, the CD player is off but every now and then I can still hear the music….
Example #2 – When Muski was born one of the ‘deals’ I made with the hospital and my OB to be allowed to VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarian) was to be monitored throughout labour. It wasn’t a big deal for me as I had the wireless do-hickey and I pretty much just forgot it was there.. except for the sound… the constant ‘doosh doosh’ of Muski’s heart beat. It wasn’t a bad sound, on the contrary it was rather soothing, much like Mozart Clarinet and Horn Concerto, it easily blended into the background with a nice constant reassuring rhythm. After he was born and we were nicely tucked up in the big bed trying to reclaim a little peace from the last few hours of darkness… I could still hear it. ‘ doosh doosh doosh” I heard it off and on for days afterwards….
Example #3 – in the middle of the night when I know no one is up and in the lounge room, I sometimes lie in bed and swear I can half hear the girls talking on the couch, or the TV on. Of course if I get up to check I find everyone tucked up in bed and the TV screen blank so I go back to bed… but I can still hear it.
It’s like the walls absorb the noise during the day and then leak a little bit of it out later on, and you can only hear it when it is all quiet….
Yes ok, I know, I am insane…..
