    Sort of like telling someone not to breathe when you tell them not to express themselves. I was a silent child. It was all in my head unexpressed. A lot of people are like that. It’s funny that the same message or story can be told by millions, but I will only connect with a few, so those few had better be talking!
    Thanks, Jack!

      I bet that it got expressed in all sorts of different ways, or so I would guess. It might not have been verbalized but…

    Who was giving you support in the background; Fido?

    I have’t thought of it like that but your comparison to Time & Newsweek makes sense. Some people will praise and some will disappear. I used to wonder why and used to think it was because I didn’t have an elevated enough status, which might or might not come into play; but ultimately you can’t be all things to all people. That’s just the way it is….

    I will be looking for your post………

      Hi Bill,

      No sarcasm or silliness here. People respond to different things. I am sure you see it in your office. Some people like the person that approaches them with a soft sell and others need someone to come tell them what to do.

      It is not always substance that dictates how people respond.
