I mentioned in a previous post that I am enjoying a couple of days of having the house to myself. One thing I intend to do is to listen to some music as loudly as I want. My wife has very sensitive hearing and can hear everything. She knows when the neighbors down the street are playing their taylor guitars or having band practice. When she is home it is very hard for me to listen to music at a level that I enjoy. It simply hurts her ears. We compromise on the volume of my music for the most part. When she is gone I take full advantage of my alone time to listen as loudly as I want. It is one of lifes little pleasures.
