This made me inordinately happy as we head into the weekend…

It is so impolite to gawk in public but somehow, this YouTube video lets us do that without guilt. Because watching Joanne Milne, a woman who has been deaf since birth and blind since her 20’s, react to hearing for the first time through cochlear implants creates raw joy.

It may be a lo-fi smart phone video, but it radiates triumph. Good on you Joanne, the world is so happy for you.
