In Praise of Listening


Tires on cars going down the street. 

A car horn. Dogs barking. Cats meowing. 

Water running in a faucet. 

I was always paying attention to sound in one way or another.

-  Gary Peacock


One of life’s great joys is finding time to listen -- whether to the grown ups talking far above our heads, or to the many voices of the non-human world:  the crash of thunder, the wind in the leaves, the bright birds singing outside our morning window. Sounds from childhood can be especially potent.

In this introductory workshop, we will take the time to remember (and to write about, and even draw) the sounds of long ago, as well as those in the immediate present. Bring your journals and your colored pencils, and expect to spend the morning reading, writing and drawing, and sharing sound memories and stories. Weather permitting, we will also spend some time out-of-doors.

No experience necessary.
