Time for reflection -

"A Good Listener"
digital collage by Mick Mather
There are times to be heard and there are times to be silent. This piece is somewhat of a mystery as regards who is doing the talking. Is it another person, beyond the frame? Is the conversation internal? In this case, for me, it's the latter and we might all do well to remember that reflection is very often an act of listening. You might not hear what it is that you want, but you're quite likely to hear a little something about what you need.

Reflection, listening is a skill. Not an easy one, to really hear what others have to say -and not trying to fill the holes with own ideas and thougths.

I appreciate you saying so, Trijnie.

It's even more difficult to listen to that quiet voice inside. It's good to get away, to empty your mind, close your eyes and listen to the secrets of the wind.
