Blind or Deaf…

When I was young, but Mother also said she would rather be blind than deaf.  At the time, I just couldn’t comprehend that statement.  I didn’t like either option, but why would she be so clear on which she would prefer.  Well obviously, as a singer her joy came from what she heard not what she saw.  In fact as we look around us today, perhaps many of us would chose the same. On the other hand, I might still chose to be deaf, closing out all of the noise around us and embracing some solitude.  Learning to feel the music and dancing without the noise.  What would you chose?
