Pauline's death saddens me more than any other musician that has died in 2016. Her music is extraordinary and means a lot to me. I have been in a weird funk since last night and have been listening to her music endlessly since. I consider myself very fortunate to have seen her live 12 years ago or so. It was one of her Deep Listening concerts held in an old, beautiful church. It was one of the most remarkable and moving concerts I've ever witnessed. While she will be missed, she did leave behind a beautiful body of music and taught many of use to not only hear music and other sounds, but to listen to them. I am very thankful for everything she gave us.
