    If that fails, be a good lip reader.

    I remember working as interpreter for some English guys who were in my city making a documentary. The sound man was the most amazing listener I’ve ever encountered. He was fully present the whole time anyone was talking. We spent about a week working on the project, and something happened during that time…I found myself telling him about it…and his very presence and attention to what I was saying was healing. He was an amazing person. We lost touch after the project finished, but I still remember the encounter.

    Beviek, I think Earl’s hearing aids are working; he needs LISTENING aids, as do so many of us.

    Can I call you Crabby? Maybe “Rino” but I believe Clyde is an old friend of Earls. They meet often on park benches, or on the Pickles’ front porch.

    I wish someone had told me in my youth how important it was to be a listener…well maybe someone did, I shall never know.

    I’m sure I’m paraphrasing somebody but the key to success is in the art of listening.
    As I grow older, my hearing and auditory discrimination is not what it used to be – neither is memory. I find myself listening with much more intensity and concentration – especially, when dealing in a “foreign” language. I don’t talk half as much, intrude into a conversation, express ad-infinitum opinions, or cut a speaker off, the way I might in English. I really do listen to what people have to say – although, mi novia might disagree , since she claims she constantly has to repeat herself, in attempting to correct my perceived bad habits.

    In sales , it’s more important to listen, than to talk.
