listen up!

Here is something that I learned this week: Sound is touch. I think we all know this, but don’t often pause to think on it or really absorb that notion. Sound is touch. Now I’m going to teach you something: When you find yourself being kind of rotten to the person you love I suggest you lay your phone down on the windowsill, open up the window wide, and zip your lip and ALLOW the hoot of a great horned owl and the chirps of the first spring frogs to come drifting into the mouthpiece and float across wires and space and land gently into the ear of the person you love. Maybe then they will forgive you for being a shit.  Because they will have felt your hand on their heart.
