Voyaging...

“To listen is to continually give up all expectation and to give our attention, completely and freshly, to what is before us, not really knowing what we will hear or what that will mean. In the practice of our days, to listen is to lean in, softly, with a willingness to be changed by what we hear.”

Mark Nepo


...Or, to be changed and open to all that is unexpected, unknown, or beyond our familiar
"comfort zone."

this is simply an excellent quote! listening is a true talent. perhaps there should be a mandatory course given in school for it. love your blog and will be by to visit more.
