Fio has the eye and Husband has the ear. She sees art everywhere while he hears music everywhere. Husband not only has shelves full of jewel cases, but imitates every sound he hears--the bird chirping, the dog barking.
His mother, who came from a musical family, would do the same, which Fio found unnerving at the time, but now understands. Just as Fio is constantly absorbing color, line, and composition, Husband is seeking to be one with the sounds of man and nature.
Interesting--at least to Fiorella.
