chop suey Friday
When we journey beyond our day-to-day, we come across forgotten places, faded dreams of a yester-year. There are such places, that I can acknowledge and let pass. Two ships in the night. Other places shout out to me, calling for my attention. So we stop and I survey the land, the energy and “vibe” of the place. What is it that makes one location stand out from another.
Same stop, different camera angle. Maybe seconds have passed, maybe it was more like a few minutes. But in the fraction of time my gaze and attention was diverted. The light, the view was different. So it is in life. When first a challenge faces us, if we listen and take in what it is we are dealing with, our response and reaction will vary. If you are two people, arriving at the same time, seeing the same thing, neither of you, will see it the same way, sometimes close, and other times..totally different.
That is why communication, conversation is so important, if there is dialogue between two people, even between two energies, there is compatibility or there isn’t. To be a good communicator, listening has to be one of your most used tools.
The place may seem empty, but…………. the reality is ………………………..it is alive with memories.
