Rain (both soft and hard)

Waves rolling/crashing
Soft wind/breeze
Slow piano notes/songs
A fan (I have to have one on during the night to help me sleep; hate total silence, I need white noise)
Trickling brook or stream
Flute and violin
His reassuring voice

Smooth jazz.
Piano.
The rain.
Ocean waves (light, not loud).
Breeze through the trees.

Elton John's singing voice.

Whispered words in the night from someone you love.


I used to be unable to sleep without the sound of a decently loud air purifier. Weird, but true.

Imagining how it would sound to hear MM whisper these faves to me in the dark, candlelit glow of a SeaHawk win over the Rams.

Probably soft growling whispers as you gloat.

Wondering now if those roles were reversed.

A niggling purr? That sounds interesting. I don't think I've ever head of gloating pulled off quite like that.


Anyway. More to add to my list.

Mmm.

I wouldn't really classify this as an abstracted "sound" but as a small tike, I could NEVER get to sleep without the Lion King soundtrack playing. So, I suppose those "sounds" from the album would be considered comforting.

Thunderstorms and rain always comfort me. Some people may have a completely opposite reaction. I also love rooster crows and the sound of tall rustling grass.

rain, rustle of leaves in a gentle breeze in autumn, slow instrumental music.

and above all her voice whispering sweet nothings in my ear :-)

if, 'to be or not to be' is the question - then how is E=MC^2?

Wow, sounds that I find comforting....well, let me see...

The sound of the rain as it strikes the roof or the ground outside.
The sound of thunder as it rumbles in the distance.
The sound of the birds as they greet the morning.
Crickets! definitely crickets are soothing for me at night.
Geckos chirping and singing their songs as they feast on termites on those still summer nights.
The purring of my cat as she snuggles against me cozy and content.
The sound of my lover's breathing as he sleeps next to me.

The sound of my mother's voice as a child, telling me she loves me.
the babbling of a brook
the tide against the shore
the wind in deciduous tree leaves
the sound of my love's voice whispering sweet nothings in my ear
the sound of a baby's laughter
the sounds of sunrise
the priceless sounds of a woman enjoying intercourse with the man she loves (or are those more exciting sounds???)
the sound of your lover's voice in your head as you read a love letter she has written you
etc

A niggling purr would not be a sufficient purr. But, great use of your vocabulary. I commend you.

The crackling of a fire in a fireplace during winter is pretty comforting.
