This morning

I was on a crowded bus this morning, and I became aware of different sounds. There were four:
  • On my right, someone's iPod playing a jazz tune. Muted trumpet.
  • On my left, a man next to me was reading a book in Arabic, possibly the Koran. He was murmuring slightly while reading.
  • Two students were talking quietly in front of me, laughing.
  • Behind me, the sound of the bus's engine.
Conversation, music, religion, machines. I listened to the mix of sounds all around me, and it sounded like the world.

  1. May sound strange but of all your posts so far this is the one that reminds me of Dan the most.
