Generator

Date recorded: June 25, 2024

Duration – 1hr

Power outages are common when you live on an island, therefore it’s beneficial to have a backup generator. I recorded my generator during our recent power outage. It may remind you of your cottage in the woods, or it may help with tinnitus. For whatever reason you feel this recording resonates with you… here it is. 🙂

Driving in my Car

Date recorded: June 23, 2024

Duration – 1hr

Come for a drive with me on the perimeter highway bypassing the city of Winnipeg in Manitoba, Canada. With the window slightly open in the car, we get onto the perimeter from the Trans-Canada highway east of Winnipeg, pass a few cars along the way, go through a construction zone, pass a semi-truck, then turn onto the #8 highway where I close the window for a relaxing drive heading north.
