The Gift of Listening

Well, now that we have seen each other,
said the unicorn, if you believe in me,
I’ll believe in you.  Is that a bargain?
~Lewis Carroll~

Listening is a magnetic and strange thing,
a creative force…When we are listened to,
it creates us, makes us unfold [and come to
life…] and expand.  Ideas actually begin to
grow within us and come to life…When we
listen to people there is an altering current,
and this recharges us so that we never get
tired of each other…and it is this little
creative fountain inside of us that begins
to spring and cast up new thoughts and
unexpected laughter and wisdom…Well,
it is when people really listen to us, with
quiet fascinated attention, that the little
fountain begins to work again, to
accelerate in the most surprising way.
~Brenda Ueland~ 

Don’t you love the way our doggies give us their undivided attention – especially when we have cookies!
