Roger Ebert on Writing, Speaking,

Tuesday, October 28th, 2008

By Larry Smith

phrenologicalchart.jpgRoger Ebert, who at some point one discovers is among our most amazing media and culture minds of our times, writes about how his writing has changed since he lost his ability to speak (verbally). Ebert writes: “Blind people develop a more acute sense of hearing. Deaf people can better notice events on the periphery, and comprehend the quick movements of lips and sign language. What about people who lose the ability to speak? We expand other ways of communicating.” His column, “I Think I’m Musing My Mind” is, in a word, mind-blowing. Read it, pass it on.
