I like the sound and rhythm of the old grandfather clocks.
A couple times a month, me and my buddies go up to their parents cabin on one of the mountains here. The place is therapeutic.
No cellphone data, patchy service allows you to make a quick call and relay some information, but a bit to patchy for extended talks.
You walk in the floor level into the kitchen and living area, during the summer all the windows are open and you can hear the sounds of nature. Most of the group is chefs so while we're up there something is always cooking in that area.
When you go to the other side of floor level, there is a study with a grandfather clock and a wood stove with all kinds of cozy chairs and couches and dim lighting. You're likely to catch someone just reading a book and sprawled out in there.
Upstairs is where all the bedrooms are, when everyone is awake there is just a radio turned down low with classical music throughout the day.
My favorite area is the one with the wood stove and grandfather clock. The tic and tocks are like a metronome that help you re calibrate from this crazy unnatural existence we have constructed for ourselves.
And now that I think about it, I'd be livid if a doorbell went off in that sanctuary... But it's one of those places if you know where it's at, you just walk right in because you're welcome.

Whenever I hear disturbing noises, I just say, "It puts the lotion on it's skin or else it gets the hose again."
And the noises usually quiet down.

Millennials, also known as Generation Y or Gen Y, are the demographic cohort following Generation X and preceding Generation Z. Researchers and popular media typically use the early 1980s as starting birth years and the mid-1990s to early 2000s as ending birth years
Now, having clarified... I was born in the mid 80's and fall into this category.
I #in' HATE doorbells. When I bought my first house, one of the first things I did was trash that stupid thing.
I'm not 'afraid' of it so much as I don't like loud unexpected alarms going off in my home...
Having said that, I do plan to have a bell set up to ring when people drive through the gate on my hundred acre wood.
Just not in my house...
