I am truly touched as I am listening to your program right now with Christa Tippet. I live in Washington Heights, highest spot in Manhattan.People complain about sleeplessness. If it happens to me, I just enjoy listening. Night sounds. Cars, people, dogs, the traffic humming on the GW bridge. My favorite is the sound of the train whistle. Just like you say, it brings up images. I think about that distant lonely place some writers talk about, the childhood dreams and longings that whistle brought to them. Thank you.
