? Probably it sounds different to everyone...
For me, it's the directionless
sound of waves hitting the shore
of a large body of water
. Large waves, the type kicked up by a strong wind or a storm on the horizon. Raw power
and threatening to destroy all you hold dear
, but still a force of nature
with no controlling will.
The noise is only one component. Consider also the premonition that the tsunami is behind, about to come crashing down. A vision of destruction, that this huge mass of water will carry you away never to exist again. A chill, an odor, a feeling of impending loss of control and doom.
Although profoundly disturbing, i wouldn't trade the ability to experience this for any Prozac, Soma, or psychochemical peace of mind.
