Quote of the Week - Remen

‎"The most basic and powerful way to connect to another person is to listen. Just listen. Perhaps the most important thing we ever give each other is our attention... A loving silence often has far more power to heal and to connect than the most well-intentioned words." 
- Rachel Naomi Remen

This is it.  The big IT.

Listening is something you do with way more than your ears - it not just receiving - it is a form of giving.

(And try not interrupting -- I know it's hard.  I do.)

I've no idea where I got this...I hope credit returns to the person who posted it or the site I found it on - I just have forgotten.  Post in comments if it came from you!  Or if you  have thoughts.
