To Truly Listen
Listening is the topic of my second post. For this I decided to go to the Patterson Lab. There I listened to people either conversing or trying desperately to complete some homework assignment. It was different from the seeing exercise because the individuals did not realize that I was listening to their every move. Every rustle of paper, every click of the keyboard, I heard it all. It was easy to flow from one conversation to the next because there were pockets of two or three individuals who would be conversing. When there were no people to listen to there was certainly the steady rhythm of the air vent that was situated directly above me.
