Close your eyes and turn off the TV or your music. Keep this picture in your mind. What do you hear?

I hear the laughter and whispers of children, barefoot and free, running up or down the steps to hide from each other.

I hear the careful steps of lovers, trying to find a secret place to be alone.

I hear the terrifying crash of swords against shields and helmets as enemies battle up and down these ancient steps. I hear the more modern thump of boots as soldiers try to regain lost ground.

I hear life.

(If you are seeing a display of click-bait, I apologize. So far I can’t figure out how to get rid of it. I’m working on it!)

  1. Dear Linda,

    What a lovely concept. Turning off the distractions. That’s how I am with swimming. I don’t want a headset as some swinners use. I love the sound of the water…period.
