The Sounds of Spring

One of the things I love most about living on Shroyer Road are all the sounds that echo around The Haasienda, especially during the Fall and Spring.

The windows are open, a breeze continually choreographs the dancing curtains, and the sounds of the neighboring campus add to the energy of the house. The indoor percussion ensemble is in sectionals and the quads and bass drums are thumping away. Earlier, runners traced the neighborhood, and sounds of athletic practices could be heard in the distance. Some evenings, the voice of the announcer for the track events floats through the air.

The summer months fill the air with typical sounds one would expect, but we have the pleasure of hearing all the concerts from the Fraze Pavilion on the next block. We’ve had REO Speed Wagon, Donna Summers, Yani, Barry Manilow, Journey, Harry Connick Jr, Air Supply, and tons of others serenading us. In the fall, we hear the marching band, soccer games, football games, and cross country runners.

I love the energy of this neighborhood. It really is a great place to live.
