Motor Boats on the Great Lakes (An Exercise in Deep Listening) Nimalan Yoganathan

“Why is it so difficult for so many people to listen? Why do they start talking when there is something to hear? Do they have their ears not on the sides of their heads but situated inside their mouths so that when they hear something their first impulse is to start talking? The situation should be more normal, don’t you think? Why don’t they keep their mouths shut and their ears open? Are they stupid?” – John Cage
