I once worked for a corporation that had its offices close to a river. It was a beautiful location with great views. Lunch-hour walks became the most satisfying part of my workday.

Something I witnessed along my walking path one day, completely changed how I had perceived and practiced my talks up until that day.

On a dry summer day, as I was walking, I heard a distant but faint voice. I stopped and listened. It sounded more like a one-way talk than a conversation.

As I walked closer, I saw a man standing at the edge of the riverbank, facing the river and talking. He was talking with a full voice. His animated hand gestures and occasional shake and nod of his head were very visible.
