Is the ear the only organ for listening
or can we listen (or not listen) with the eye?
life’s supreme nonverbal communication,
contains amazing grace, often unappreciated.
Being seen, a form of being listened to,
is transformative, for good or ill.
A simple glance can color our days,
our lives, in ways unimagined.
An annual eye examination might be
a way of measuring our listening skill.
