While reading, I was listening to the American Mavericks’ “smooth” station on internet radio. Then the music stopped, and didn’t come back on. I looked at the playlist window and found that they were playing Cage’s 4’33″. So I stopped reading and listened to the hum of the refrigerator, the creaking of my recliner, the drip of the air conditioner. I reconnected to my environment. What a great thing Cage did for us!
