ART | I | FACTS – No. 11

Hearing.

 

Fact :: I think I had a minor inner ear infection recently. I noticed instantly when it was clearing because it didnt sound like my left side was in the depths of an ocean anymore. I immediately thanked the Universe for my hearing. At the same time, my computer needed some TLC… and the Apple technician broke off my space bar. So. It is getting a longer repair now. Anyhow, I had this thought. I only have these ears… I must take care of them. I can’t just go into an Apple store and get new ears. I am not an amalgamation of disposable and replaceable parts. How could I forget that? In this age of technology + information, sometimes it is scary to think how “at one” anyone can become with convenient devices.

Also, I need to get back to playing my uke – the one that is 3D and looks less like a pineapple. I wonder if ukuleles were designed from a pineapple shape and I am mad that I don’t have a pineapple emoji. I still like circles and lines and asymmetry. ✌🏼
