Real presence is not just attention, it is really being there to listen, feel, share, open up, give and receive without measure and do so indefinitely. I could use a constant reminder to always stay present (sometimes learning is really like bathing, each day there's need to refresh :)) Memories Tablet, Favorite Places, Life Lessons, Be Presents Quotes, Brass, Favorite Pinz, Plaques, Inspiration Quotes, Thich Nhat Hanh

So much was left unsaid. I can't help but wonder what we would've said and done that last day if we hadnt got caught. We actually wouldve got to say goodbye. Would I have gotten another long hug from you? One last hug to make me feel safe for the few seconds I was in your arms? Would I have broken down right there? Would you have been the first guy to see me cry over goodbye? Would you have held me in your arms and told me it was alright? So much was left unsaid and undone. Too much.
Paul Coelho. Smart man. My new thing is travel. I think the best way to spend your time is being with someone you are madly in love with & enjoying life. Some people would rather network & fill every single minute engaging with as many people as possible. I am about travel now, alone or eventually with someone who gets me. So, solo works for me.
Communication is both an expressive, message-sending, and a receptive, message-receiving, process. Failure to communicate effectively can be due to a problem on either or both ends of the process. Say what you mean and mean what you say. Be direct and honest; don't dance around the issue or play games.
