Is Listening an Art?

There’s an education to listening, an understanding, a willingness to attend.  Like the simple tuning of a guitar or the subtleties of an orchestral performance, there’s something to it.

If you recall the last time you were in a forest do you remember the calm open sound of the breeze in the trees, mixed with the birds and insects and the multi layered music of the brook?

No, listening isn’t an art, but it is a skill.
