Keeping the channels open

Endeavour to remain aware
Of the quiet world
That lives behind each face.*
(John O’Donohue)

give the person speaking respectful interested Attention**
(Nancy Kline)

I interrupt people.

I interrupt the usual, the same old same old, the what you see is all there is.

My aim to give uninterrupted attention to what lies beneath the rush and familiar and normal.
