December 28, 2018: Noticing What is Always There

“…the music of the spheres, that chord of seven notes

one for each of the visible planets,

which has been sounding since the beginning of the universe

And which we can never hear, according to Pythagoras

Because we hear it all the time, so it sounds the same as silence . . .”

––Billy Collins: The Music of the Spheres
