Just noise

Pop, pop, pop.  What the hell…BOOM! The crater of water falling back to the surface. Boom… A deep growling baritone rises and then releases its full roar; again the crater of water falls back to the water’s surface. Everything around you is rumbling and shaking. An instant sense of fear engulfs your body and senses all over the echo of noise. You don’t know what to do about it. Boom! Pop, pop, pop; your body adjusts, your mind focuses as the crater of water continues falling all around. Ahh. More noise. It starts to become a musical which you and only you can compose. You still try not to flinch, but that particular song is too strong at times to ignore, so you continue on. Boom… You start to admire the sound, you start to embrace what’s going on. Pop, pop, pop. You hear it, but you yourself have to learn this song on your own. It will be ok. It’s only noise. The song plays on as you become a part of this particular song. Boom! Pop, pop, pop…You’re now in control.

See you in the next post!


Author: The Ordinary Compass

Hello and welcome to this collection of anecdotes from my years of ordinary moments and timeless memories. I try to share a positive message, as well as lessons learned which have helped me appreciate life. Sometimes, all it takes is a simple (positive) gesture. I write in the hope that I can make a difference and you as the reader will also see the possibilities that surround you, and as well that the little things do make a big difference. I’m originally from New Jersey, have traveled and lived on both the east and west coasts, and have happily been a Virginia resident for more than ten years. I have been married for over ten years; my wife is my anchor and has kept my compass correct. I have always been an individual who likes the outdoors. I like taking my time to think about the outcomes of situations. I enjoy philosophy and love science. I am no stranger to high adrenaline activities and love everything that revolves around water. Thank you for stopping by and feel free to comment, re-blog (with credit), or just read along! –Robert Konz.
