Sounds Seen

This is the second in a series of posts that follow a list of Practical Applications for the Spring, 2018 Special Edition of Field Notes, West Coast Series. You can read the suggested Practical Applications for each edition on the rear inside of the cover. It is a salutary exercise to to actually try each suggested use! I am using them as “writing prompts”.

1. Coins clinking as they are inserted in the fare box on a bus.
2. The tearing sound of my bus transfer being torn by the bus driver from a pad.
3. The ripping sound of car tires on wet road pavement.
4. The throaty sound of the the bus engine as it approaches my stop to pick me up.
5. The click/snap of a plastic lid being attached to a paper cup just filled with coffee at Starbucks.
