LISTEN better: Enjoy being SILENT

Of course you noticed "listen" comes out of the same letters that "silent" holds. It took some work for me to back off from having to fill every silence in a conversation. The rewards are well worth it.

Someone else says he will not consider honoring silence in conversation. He can monopolize and he will, simply because he can. Anyone else will need to interrupt or talk over, in order to get in. 

I choose to leave a better wake.
