Thoughts - July 24, 2016

"Conversation. What is it? A Mystery! It's the art of never seeming bored, of touching everything with interest, of pleasing with trifles, of being fascinating with nothing at all.”
― Guy de Maupassant
I was thinking about a good friend of mine the other day. Sadly, she died of cancer much too young, but her first three decades were abundant and full. That woman could enchant with her conversing skills.Being somewhat shy during those college years, I was in awe of her ability to charm (and win over) everyone from the most dour professors to the person who bagged her groceries. It never was is the case with most of us. So, how important is conversation in this technical era? Does the importance change during various phases of our lives? How do we teach and learn the art of conversing? I would like to be "pleasing with trifles." - Beth Almond Ford
