EARPLUGS

Losing your hearing is

easy:

listen to everything

LOUD!

Go to all the concerts you can,

stand in the front

and

don’t wear earplugs.

 

Soon you’ll begin to lose your ability

to detect the subtle notes

you used to enjoy.

 

The same is true in the rest of your life.

 

If you are constantly

tuned in to

the news,

the feeds,

email,

expectations,

anxiety,

fear

you’re going to lose

the subtlety

of living.  

 

You’ll become deaf

to what really matters.

 

You have to learn

when to put in

the earplugs.
