Allowing sound to reveal life’s wonder

Stephen Kuusisto, Writer

Nothing’s nondescript if you really listen – there’s music everywhere. That’s the experience of poet Stephen Kuusisto, who is blind. Everywhere he goes, he listens, from the rhythmic hiss and bump of a child jumping on a mattress to the dreamy classical music from a far-off car radio. It’s not noise – it’s music. And it’s how he chooses to experience the world and let the world in. Life is expressed in so many ways, by so many people. Have you been listening? What do you hear right now?
