The Art Of Dialogue

  1. If someone does not know, is heading in the wrong direction, you may point out the right direction, then walk away.
  2. Don’t be tedious with speech.  Be considerate with what you say and do.
  3. Never turn dialogue into argument or introduce anger or meanness, tolerate mistakes and walk away from a fight.
  4. Stop quarrels with diplomacy.
  5. Take care of yourself and others to avoid or recover from errors of judgement.  This is a singular distinction made by those people who make good philosophers.  Don’t tell them what to do, show them through the Socratic  Method or a means that will not cause a bunch to your nose!

Perhaps these professionals are into learning more than the average person.

Perhaps we are more repulsed by hard learning and hard work.

I might find the marathon idea of interest.

What do I do well and wouldn’t object to doing marathon fashion?

Writing, photography and philosophy…

How about you?

Work, Work, Work

‘The daily grind’ as apprised as this negative saying sounds, may surprise some people.

It helps express unwanted change in daily routines and feeling that are really hard to process day in and day out.

But for the most part life slides by much like streaming tends to flow..

So finding purpose and meaning requires doing some homework.

Get connected in all your affairs and see if meaning and purpose will come to a better conclusion.

Peaople and being with them in warm-hearted, friendly ways are better than judgement al ways.

Try it at work tomorrow, see if it helps or hurts.

The Four Seasons

I am fortunate to be listening to an old favourite of mine.

Vivaldi: The Four Seasons by Tafelmusik-Jeanne Lamon. Sony Music 1992.

I have a copy of the CD as well as this digital copy in my library.

It is a great pleasure to hear it tonight after all these years, 2014, no 2010? When did I last remark in my journal? It is a pleasure to note it here.
