Music and Silence

What It’s Like for a Deaf Man to Hear Music for the First Time This article made me tear up, especially after listening to his top five favorite songs (Sigur Ros!). He absolutely loves music, and yet, “Silence is still my favorite sound,” he writes. “When I turn my aids off my thoughts become more clear and it’s absolutely peaceful.” This reminds me of something Father Keating says in "The Future of Christianity": The common denominator of all religions is silence because silence is non-denominational.
