JUST Listening

While this blog is mostly about musical listening, Sharon Browning’s JUST Listening blog is about another kind of listening, and her writing offers challenge, solace and inspiration. Sharon’s own voice is that of a prophet, as she invites us to mindfully listen to the voices of those marginalized in our society. She writes:

Skilled listening is creative, opening up new possibilities for all involved, and can be a powerful tool for social change. Although rarely consulted or listened to, people on the social margins are the best source of information and ideas about the issues facing them.

Let those who have ears to hear, listen.
