What you say is important. What your listener hears you say is arguably more important. Think about what you are saying and think about what your listener is hearing from you. They are not always the same thing. Is that … Continue reading
The kids and I went for a walk at Rocky Point in Port Moody last weekend and they decided to play detective to solve the mystery of “the tortured wedding boat” – the old rotting corpse of a boat located … Continue reading
