How well do you Listen?

  Listening & learning How well do you listen? Do you hear what others mean to say?  When I was staying with my sister earlier this year, I listened to her tell a story about our mother, and thought ‘who was that women she is talking about?’  It struck me how differently we all see and hear things.  My sister and I are a year apart, however we were quite different as kids, she loved sciences, I loved the arts.   We had the same parents, were brought up the same way, and yet how we received their messages and perhaps how they [...]
