Falling water sound

The heavy rains have created a couple of small waterfalls down the road, spontaneous and delicate, to last only as long as the land drains the abundant waters. In many households, this sound –artificially generated by a little electric pump — masks obnoxious noises as “white noise.” But here, at twilight, there are no human sounds, and nature offers a gift. To paraphrase the old question: If water falls in the woods and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound? Oh, yes. The whole universe is making this beautiful sound — but we must be “here” in order to hear it.
