Courage to be a listener

“Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak;
courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.”
– Winston Churchill

Journalling reads…

Harold and Blair are two of the most unpretentious, shy, quiet, definitely ‘not in your face’ kind of people. You won’t hear much from either of them, although I am sure they have much to say because they are observers of the world. They watch, say little, think – there is a humbleness about them. I wonder what they are thinking when confronted by those who feel the need to just talk.
So, it was kind of nice to catch this picture of the two of them on the swings talking. Two shy, quiet listeners… talking listening to each other.
