    Sheesh I’m tired! A little too much wine with friends last night. Oops…. Hope you all had a wonderful fourth! We had a quite relaxing weekend. Much needed since work has me really busy right now.

    On listening and courage

    I’ve been thinking about the concept of listening recently, in two ways: • What does listening look like? How do I do it? • How do I know I am being truly listened to?
