Today’s obsession – headphones

Sharon Ashwood
January 13, 2016  •  No Comments

GramophoneThis has nothing to do with anything to do with writing or books, but it’s my blog and I can blither if I want to.

So I grew up with audio geeks and my mother, who is a musician, still claims that vinyl sounds better than anything else. Playing a record is a ceremony requiring the exact positioning of furniture, cleaning of the needle with special elixirs and sitting with uninterrupted focus to listen. I’m not quite that picky, but I finally coughed up money for a decent set of Sennheiser headphones and realized just how good digital CAN be if the proper equipment is available. My iTunes playlist suddenly has new life and–wait a moment–instruments I hadn’t even noticed! Lyrics I can understand! A sense of space and distance between sounds! Seriously, the average earbuds just don’t do justice to good music.

I’m not sure why it’s taken me this long to get some good headphones, but I think it has something to do with a beloved white pussycat of yore who used to chew through the wires of anything he could find.  I loved him dearly, but one month he went through 3 sets of headphones. The sight of him with spaghetti wire dangling from his mouth discouraged any serious investment  . . . I’d have him back in a heartbeat though.

As a countdown to Halloween, I thought a week of pumpkins would be fitting!  So I got out my camera and went stalking gourds. We’ll start gently with a composition imbued with a general harvest theme . . .2015-10-17 13.50.11
