Listening

This is a great talk on listening.

I love Evelyn Glennie.  Her musicianship and virtuosity are a given, but here I am really touched my her thoughts on both the ideas of interpretation vs. translation and listening in general.

Glennie has been Profoundly Deaf since she was 12.

This is from a Buddhist blog, 21Awake, that I have just started reading.  Enjoy.

Watching her is amazing. I wish that I had been born with that kind of innate talent. To be an artist is truly a gift.

I'm so glad you enjoyed it, Kristin. There's no question that she's an inspiration! I also think that anyone who pursues their passion with drive and commitment is just as inspiring. Happy I so enjoyed catching up with you...Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.
