What Do Wind Chimes Sound Like?

Crystal wind chime

A lot of amazing things happened this week and I did not have much time to write about some of the experiences, until now. Here is one of them:

I was hanging up some sign language charts on the walls in a classroom and noticed a small wind chime hanging nearby. One of the students, a hearing child, made it move. Being that I have a severe-profound hearing loss in the high frequency areas, I could hardly hear it.

I asked the student, "What does it sound like?"

He paused for a moment and then said, "Sounds like angels laughing. You know if we can hear them laugh, I think they would sound like this."

This came from a second grader.

I almost fainted from the sheer profoundness of his statement.

  2. Before I could say anything he walked away saying he had to go to the bathroom. Then I had to go to my next school. I will probably ask him about this next time I see him.

  4. That's quite an analogy. Perhaps all the mystery is gone for me. I think I'd have told you it was tinny clanging. Angels are a much better image.

  5. wind chimes We also have a select range of pure 100% copper rain chains which give a musical voice to the rain. Functional when used in place of a gutter down pipe, a mesmerizing water feature that is beautiful to watch, and the sound of the rain water flowing through soothes and relaxes the mind and soul.
