The Single Most Powerful Method to Uplift Every Conversation You Have Today

Thank you to International School Leader magazine for including my piece, “The Single Most Powerful Method to Uplift Every Conversation You Have Today,” in their December 2019 issue.    

Michael Nichol’s book on The Lost Art of Listening is a special one; I appreciate the opportunity to share his ideas, and hope you enjoy the read.

Michael Connelly
“He loved the city most at night. The night hid many of the sorrows. It silenced the city yet brought deep undercurrents to the surface. It was in this dark slipstream that he believed he moved most freely. Behind the cover of shadows. Like a rider in a limousine, he looked out but no one looked in.
There was a random feel to the dark, the quirkiness of chance played out in the blue neon light. So many ways to live. And to die.”
Michael Connelly, The Black Ice

Michael Connelly
“... he always carried the feeling that he was struggling toward some kind of resolution and knowledge of purpose. That there was something good in him or about him. It was the waiting that was so hard. The waiting often left a hollow feeling in his soul. And he believed people could see this, that they knew when they looked at him that he was empty.”
Michael Connelly, The Black Ice

Michael Connelly
“one of the crazies moved into the cone of light beneath a streetlight. It was a black man, high-stepping and making jerking movements with his arms. He made a crisp turn and began moving back into the darkness. He was a trombone player in a matching band in a world somewhere else.”
Michael Connelly, The Black Ice

Edward Abbey
“Men come and go, cities rise and fall, whole civilizations appear and disappear-the earth remains, slightly modified. The earth remains, and the heartbreaking beauty where there are no hearts to break....I sometimes choose to think, no doubt perversely, that man is a dream, thought an illusion, and only rock is real. Rock and sun.”
Edward Abbey, Desert Solitaire: A Season in the Wilderness

Edward Abbey
“Wilderness. The word itself is music.”
Edward Abbey, Desert Solitaire
