The first time I can remember making my first major auditory-visual connection like these was when I was six years old. My class was learning how to pray the Rosary. Our first grade classroom had the fluorescent lights switched off but the window blinds open so that it was dark and calming. We sat in a circle on the floor carpet in the back of the room while our teacher taught us the prayers and the mysteries and how to move along with the beads. We were given those plastic rosaries with the beads that shone in the light and that was really something to us.
