    What a beautiful painting (and a beautiful surprise from your friend)! Listening truly is an art form that not enough people master, myself included. I like to think of myself as a pretty good listener, but more often than I care to admit I’m formulating a response in my head as the other person is speaking instead of truly listening. Thanks for the reminder of what makes a good listener.

      Thank you, Lisa. He is a great guy and a super friend! Yes, I agree. Often we are thinking of what our response will be when the person talking takes a breath. I am going to work on being a more effective listener also.
