Have you ever been in a situation where all you could do what sit and think? There was nothing to do but delve into your own thoughts and prayers. To some, that would be an amazing thing to experience, others, their worst nightmare. At the Orfield Labs in South Minneapolis there is a room that is %99.99 sound absorbent. That means it is so quiet you can here your own blood pulsing through your ears. The longest anyone has lasted in that room is 45 min. I thought that seemed silly, and I could totally beat that record.
“I just need someone to listen.” I have heard those words a few times in my life, and I am sure they are said on a daily basis. Whether it is a friend, a family member, or even a stranger, we all want someone to listen. Listening helps us feel loved. Just recently I heard someone say that love is spelled T.I.M.E., and how true that is. When we need someone to just sit and hear our stories, the time and focus they put into it helps us to feel the love they have for us. But that art form has been dying for some time now.
