This is lovely. I can't imagine living in NYC, but I can picture how my melodious bullfrog, crickets, and cicadas could seem louder than jackhammer and wailing sirens. My red ink is tiny. I think you meant faze jot phase, but that is minor. I enjoyed how the son lived his mother so much, and I understand that need to go home. You captured the topic in a fresh and beautiful way.
This sounds like my sister when she comes to visit us, she goes "crazy with the quiet" and sounds of nature as opposed to the "frenzied" sounds the city.

Sweet story about love as what I think is the "main theme."

Thanks for letting us in on your MC's thinking, and how love is providing a stretch outside teh comfort zone - while the love for his/her mother is providing its own comfort.
Your title is also very clever.
