Listening Generously

Yesterday at Spa 88 on Fulton Street (we will try to go once a month, if we can) Chris and Laurie and I were talking, in the jacuzzi (no one else was there) about talking, and listening. I mentioned that some years ago Peter heard this wonderful interview on the radio, ON BEING, by the brilliant unusual person (she is a doctor she is a writer but she is a person above all) named Naomi Rachel Remen. She talks about listening. Peter played the interview for me. And we listened to it, over and over again. Her interview is a wonderful poem.

For some of us
what we hear
that is
what you say
to me
and then
how I hear you
for some of us
is who
we are
