This piece was written for Disquiet Junto Project 0250: Soothing Sounds.

One of the coolest things about being retired is that I get a chance to sit with my 16 month old granddaughter a couple of days a week. When I put her down for a nap I sing _Misty_ to her (during the first verse she holds up her hand, I think because she recognizes the words “I get misty, just holding your hand.”

Watching her on the monitor when she wakes up I see her rolling around, singing and talking (her own language). So when the weekly challenge was to write something based on Raymond Scott’s “_Soothing Sounds for Baby_” I thought of this moment.

Not wanting to copy what he did I needed to come up with something quickly, as I am occupied all weekend. I was lucky to be able to get some ideas and complete the task within three hours.
