listen

imageThis picture repeated. Prompted by comments on ‘see’. Words when written and their potential ambiguity a source of misunderstanding. The thought expressed that it was possible to make this not so by careful choice of words. I do not believe that statement true. Communication always involving more than one party. Misunderstanding not merely grammatical fault. But words do have a common meaning so today have carefully chose listen not hear. Listening active while hearing passive. But as ever communication is a function of intent and where the emotional cloud hovers. Good morning can be interpreted as a statement or a question and Take Care as both concern and a threat. Today wish to not only see what you see but also to understand what you say too.

Have a nice day
