Fireside Chat

Oh, how I would love this. I love to listen to people – I have so much to learn.

Listen to them brag and learn to understand the need for acceptance.

Listen to them complain and learn to understand the need for relief.

Listen to them laughing and learn to understand to laugh at myself.

Listen to them crying and learn to be compassionate with myself and others.

Listen to them talking and learn to respect the need to be respected.

Listen to them talk gossip and learn that they are lonely.

Hear them talk about the past and wonder if it is from regret or thankfulness.

And then I would ask them some questions about this stupid blog and how I get some of these things to work.

Listening vs hearing. Talking vs listening.
