On Volume

You have nothing to fear from loud sounds. Sure, they're big and scary, but they're also quite obvious. It's hard to miss a train whizzing by or a firecracker exploding in sky or a fire alarm yelling to get out of a building. It's the little sounds you have to watch for. They're the tricky buggers. A loud car speeding by your house might wake you up at night, but it's the tiniest noises - the buzz of a small insect, the ominous tick of clock's second hand, the eerie creak of a door, the imperceptible whistle of the wind through a tree, the low breath of your sleeping dog - that will keep you up.
