Oh Creative One! I worked with the Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing for 15 years before I started my family. A father, who was Deaf since birth, decided to get a cochlear implant at the same time that his 1 year old daughter got hers. He was surprised at what had sound; his car’s windshield wipers. He was even more surprised at what did not have a sound; the sun. How could something so warm and brilliant not have a sound? Why get an implant if there wasn’t even a sound for the sun to have?

Delightful Creative One! I’m so happy to see you again. I wonder what you find unjust? The sun’s lack of sound? That words do not have a taste? You cannot feel love under your fingertips like old cashmere? Do tell.
