AbstractHistoryArchive Description

In 'Cara', the narrator is at a concert hall for Vaughan Williams' 'A Sea Symphony'. They notice a boy with a service dog and a girl with heavy glasses, and realises they're blind. As the music plays and they watch the two blind people listen intently, the narrator wonders what it is that sighted people miss.
