65. The Art of Conversation

One the the most interesting challenges to me is learning about people. In short, a challenge is learning the art of conversation. How do you find that one nugget that enable you to talk for hours, learning deeply, touch and be touched? How do you go beyond those nuggets? A lovely "Welcome Drinks" for friends's daughter's wedding tested those talents in the nicest way. One good moment was when an accomplished Emergency Room Physician (and best friend of my friend, the mother-of-the-bride) stated that teaching in Tanzania is one of the most satisfying things she does because what she does is important and appreciated (even though she's an older, obviously-not-local woman).
