Intermittent distraction.

Neighbour's downspout.

I've been seated at the computer for most of the day, listening to periodic heavy rain on the roof as bands of showers have swept over the south coast. Rain on the roof is almost as evocative as a scent. I recall being eight or nine years old, lying in my bunk at the family cottage, listening to the rain. This makes me sleepy, and I want to go lie down, but unfortunately there is work to do.

For me it's the sound of an airplane overhead on a sunny day. Lonely.

K&V, Yes, that's a good one.
