Just remembering what it use to sound like to lie on the ground as a child and listen to the gentle wind in the long grass. I use to imagine the sound of the wind moving arcoss the grass was caused by the tails of invisible dragons flying playfully past. Simon Schama in his book "Landscape and Memory" agues that we overlay mythology and the human imagination on to geographical locales and embody them in memory, and for me this is certainly true when I think about the farm I grew up on. Sound for me is always alive on many different levels and has huge potential to spark the imagination like nothing else can.
