Chilly, dewy afternoon walkNovember 15, 2013
To inhale some fresh autumn air and to stretch my legs a bit, Benjamin and I decided to have a walk again; the sun was shining bright. But also to flee from our own house. Since a short while we have new neighbours; and to speak so freely (something I can do here, right?) ... those are not quite my kind of people. The street we live in has some really old houses. Ben and I live in a house of which it's carcass dates from 1330; you can imagine with those flimsy walls that it's really noisy. We live in the center of the centrum and ofcourse that comes with alot of noise. So far so good ... but our new neighbours are very, very fond of hardcore music; music that I loathe. The only thing we hear is the constant beating of the bass. That starts at 09.00 AM and ends at 02.00 PM for a whole week now. I guess they don't have to work or something. I am HSP (highly sensitive person); which means I have a high level of sensitivity to physical ( sound, sight, touch, or smell ) and/or emotional stimuli. Constantly hearing noise repeat itself ( like a bass beat in this case ) makes me feel like a caged animal going crazy and not being able to escape. It feels as if your head is going to explode and it makes you an emotional wreck. Living in the centre of Zutphen hasn't brought me any suffering as the noise of life outside does not repeat itself constantly. But the beat music does. Cross your fingers for me that they are reasonable when I go and talk to them! We have to pinpoint first where they live exactly.
