The Transfiguration

everything is sacred

Clatter of the Day #2039

I stepped onto the balcony this afternoon to capture the sound of our jellies clattering in the breeze. I must have startled the wind, because it hushed up the moment I started filming. The silence left behind was soon filled with other phonic creatures bending around the alley – a train calling in the distance, cars whispering down the road, a bird chirping its electric rhythms.

There’s a sense of immersion when you stop and listen like that, as if you’re a forest floor and can feel dozens of different species crawling and bouncing and sprinting across you, leaving each of their unique footprints across your length.

a different kind of buzz
