Long ago I learned to watch people, to observe them and to adopt the things I liked most about them as my own. A sweetness here, a ferocity there, a humbleness to follow, kindness, compassion, a spine of steel, all of these traits wonderful to have in the tool kit of personal ‘getting along’ in the world.
I am older now, and I watch still. I see pretty clearly and intuit even more. I continue the journey, still seeking bits and pieces which will compliment that which I already am.
I never did like too much talking, although I too can be guilty of such.
