An Open Mind


Listening is a fine image for an open mind.  We are made to be vulnerable in terms of hearing:  Sight is forward-directed and we can close our eyes.  But the ear works all around us and we cannot voluntarily close our ears.
But we can always insert ear buds.
Once the ear is open to a full range of reverberation every sound is an invitation to the next, not because we know what is coming, but because there are so many factors that we cannot possibly predict: loudness, exact timing, little things like that on which magic is spun.
