I Listen

    I like how dogs' ears can flip inside out.

    It’s as if they’re saying, Keep talking, human, but I’m not even listening...

    Ears Not Mouth!

    I definitely prefer listening over speaking. some people don't know that, they either keep telling me to speak more or call me very  shy. i like listening, and like it when others speak more.

    It Matters

    I listen and watch and observe others and attempt to jump in when needed. Not as the nosey neighbor but as a caring individual who just hates to see others suffer. I listen... do you?

    Yes, a Man That Listens.

    Before I divorced, I will admit I never listened. It was about me.... I want this, I want that.... blah blah.... So through the years, I started to listen. And not just listen but to absorb it and understand. About not just the current events, but everything... Life...

    To More Than Just Words

    People often ask me why I am usually pretty quiet, excusing the once-or-twice a month blab-fest on my part, of course. Some just assume that I am shy, but honestly, this isn't the case. I simply prefer to listen rather than speak... you definitely learn a lot more that way, not...
