Can it be seeing? Or touching? (finger painting). Or another one? I think it's seeing myself (how could one paint without seeing?)

For me it's definitely hearing because I enjoy music more than anything else

music.

though being deaf is less of a curse then being blind.

the dead lose out on music (a huge loss), the blind lose out on the rest of what life offers, a pretty face, sunsets, etc......... ;-/.

music offers an inate joy the deaf will never know.

knowing this, if i had to chose between become deaf or blind, i'd have to choose losing music (would just play it via my memory in my head) - over never seeing my Gf face or sunsets.
