(The first in a series.)
#1 - Church bells every hour. Just distant enough to be soft and unexpected and pretty.
#2 - Long, deep bathtub.
#3 - When my head is below water in said tub, I can hear activity from the person or people in the apartment below me. Four electronic beeps (probably a microwave), an occasional radio.
#4 - Huge window in the bathroom. The sun streams in full-on right about the time I need to shower in the mornings.
