“One only understands the things that one tames…Men have no more time to understand anything. They buy things all ready made at the shops. But there is no shop anywhere where one can buy friendship, and so men have no friends any more.” — The Fox, The Little Prince

From clients to friends, I’m in love with taming people and gleaning their stories. If I didn’t take the time to listen, I’d have nothing to write about. Of course, I sometimes stumble and Yep. Yep. Yep like when listening to my mom on the phone while simultaneously washing dishes. But I’ll catch myself, sit down on the couch, and then ask her a clarifying question. I know from personal experience how good it feels to be really listened to.
