All the Things I don't know about Music

Now that my iPod is set up with speakers by my bed I choose a little something each morning to ease myself awake. Yesterday was the Last Four Songs: today Greatest Hits of the Fifties.

I would love to study voice recognition programs, to understand and see the characteristics of each voice, why some are smooth and mellow, others have a thrilling vibrato, or are rich or husky or pure. A Project. How do we even find sound beautiful? Or anything: what is beauty, and do animals feel it? They must, look at lyre birds. Do we ever grieve their aesthetic sense?

The ceiling is finished and looks as though it has always been there.
