the art of listening without speaking .....

I really appreciate all the comments that people give me here (except the obviously offensive ones), but at times, I find it impossible to answer them -- like this morning I can see I am backing up on comments to reply to, but, I can't find replies.

Part of me feels that perhaps if I don't reply you will feel unappreciated, but another part of me is really unhappy about making it me who has to have the last say on everything in my blog. It is a supreme arrogance to think I could have an answer to every single thing someone has to say. Sometimes, it is out of respect that I leave you to have the last say, to leave your words open-ended and free of any interpretation or enclosures I might clutter them with.

At the moment, I feel that way -- I don't want the last word. So while I read some of the comments again and again listening is actually an exercise in silence, so if I am silent on your comment, still, I am listening...

Thank you for all the love, attention, kindness and thought you give me!

Kisses....
