Seashell Song

It’s believed that if you put a seashell to your ear, you can hear the sound of the ocean. That’s utter nonsense. It doesn’t even make sense from a scientific perspective. The truth is, putting that fossil to your ear only echoes the sound of your blood rushing through your veins.

It’s a constant rushing because your blood is (hopefully) always moving. Like traffic on the interstate. Like water from a sink tap. Like the constant narration in an auDHD’r’s brain. It doesn’t ebb and flow, doesn’t crash against an immovable object and return as the unbeatable force it is. Not unless you have a skull fracture, but that’s a whole different scenario with a whole different set of problems.

So, no, it’s not the sound of the ocean. It’s the sound of your life flowing through the pipes of this entropic, nihilistic universe that couldn’t give two shits about you. If that’s not a beautiful sound? I don’t know what is.
