A moment captured in sounds by an alert listener as he walks. Noting the precious details of the world is for me a strong element of living in the spirit of nuannaarpoq. Perhaps we could parachute in on one sense or another, sight, hearing, smell, and focus it on a few minutes of a day or a few yards of a walk, noting its subtleties and changes.
Dry friction of cicada from the palm-tree across the road. Eucalyptus leaves breaking their wrists with a small click as they begin to plane down over the tombstones. The maceration of pebbles by sea-water, mingling with the noise of coffee being ground, and the shearing noise of a pot being scoured. An inventory of sounds from a late morning walk.
