Learning to listen

December 28, 2010


Yesterday I did that thing. Listening but not hearing.

Too busy thinking of my next remark to pay attention to another.

A one-way conversation because I’m talking to myself.

It’s not deliberate. We all do it.

Our chattering thoughts are always a few steps ahead or a long way behind.

I try to still those thoughts. To be here. To hear those around me.
