...I am indeed addicted to dialogue. I hope that does not in any way mean I like to hear myself spout off and ignore what other people have to say. I have no doubt tha that tendency is in me and that I must fight it. I really do want to learn to be a good/deep/sensitive listener. This is essential to real, true dialogue. Not JUST that you pause to let the other guy get a word in edgewise, but that when you do pause tolet the other party respond, you really DO concentrate intently upon really hearing what they have to say. Oh Lord help me with this! Humble me to know I need to really listen to what others have to say.
