Are You A Good Listener?

A beautiful Sunday high 71 and sunny……does not get much better than that….granddaughter is practicing her flute….I am enjoying a cup of Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee…..

First some bad news…..Rock legend Chuck Berry has died at 90….may he now Rest in Peace.

I have noticed that there are some visitors that do not read the whole post before they comment…..which leads me to believe that they are terrible at listening…..they have a set in their mind and nothing that does not conform to that set will be heard.

This got me to thinking about what type of listener I am….I think that I do it well for I will try to make sense of what has been said…..sometimes I think that is a lost art form……”Most people do not listen with the intent of understanding; they listen with the intent of replying”

There are people who, instead of listening to what is being said to them, are already listening to what they are going to say themselves.

What then makes a good listener?

So my friends…are you a good listener?

Time to enjoy the sunshine….see everyone tomorrow with more stuff.  Until then enjoy some Chuck Berry……
