|Stop and hear
"At night Mole ate his supper in front of the TV and then went to bed...but lately he had begun to feel there was something missing."
Mole hears someone playing the violin and longs to learn music, too.
All alone in his underground home, he practices with great patience until he learns to play and wonders what it would be like to play his music for people.
"He even imagined that his music could reach into people's hearts and melt away their anger and sadness."
Mole did not realize the power of his own music.
