Now quench the drought of melody
With babbling, gurgling harmony,
And hearken to the ancient chorus
Performed each day and set before us!
(R Weisser 2014)
It seems that everything is changing rapidly these days. Our immersion in technology infiltrates every facet of our existence.
But there are things that are pretty much the same as they were a thousand years ago.
The sound of a river crashing over rocks. The stars in the night sky. A gentle breeze on a sultry day.
Now I might use technology to record these examples. But they exist independently without any intervention from me or technology!
And will continue to do so long after we are gone!
