A World of Sound

by Stapledon, Olaf

Another short one for another short day, and the beauty here should be evident: how lovely it would be if our physical presences existed as waves of sound, if physical injury were a momentary blip of discord, if your emotional duress a note hit flat, if inner harmony was literal. Yea, that’s the stuff.
