This comes from The Listening Book – Discover Your Own Music by W.A. Mathieu.
“Age matters. You mature aurally. Your perception of sound opens and deepens. Your loves ripen, your hearing grows keener. You can read meaning where there was none before. You are wiser than you were even last week, and your heart and ears are bigger. Remind yourself to keep listening for the new in what seems to be the old and familiar. You may hear for the first time something that has been singing to you all along.”
