“You always ask questions.”

He said.

“I ALWAYS ask questions?” she replied.

“Yes. You ask a lot of questions.”

"I ALWAYS ask questions?” she said a little stronger.

“You are a good questioner.” he came back with, hearing the upset in her voice.

I am not sure where their conversation ended up – but it made me smile. For I have been known to ask a question.....or two.

Okay, I like to ask questions – no, I like to hear people’s stories – that is what I like.

I have found that questions posed in the right way – allow people to feel comfortable enough to tell you their story. Maybe it is a gift that I bring to the table – I just know that I get to hear a lot of stories about people’s lives and they fill me up – giving me insight that (hopefully) leads to knowledge.

life is my college

I've been accused of this very issue..the constant questions about anything from food particles to life in another state..I must try to learn your art because I know my dear friends are quickly annoyed with my ever so constant and meaningful email questions. I think you've given me an idea.

Have a nice weekend,
Always,
