What I’m doing here … and why it might possibly matter

I am mesmerized by the art of communication. “How did what I just said become what they think they heard?” If perception is reality, most of us are in heaps of trouble heaps of the time.

The truth is most people don’t listen to what they hear. They don’t read what they see. I am continually amazed how even text messages (with less than 160 characters) can be incorrectly responded to. Or how one major point (how many major points can there be in a text?) is completely ignored.

As our society continues to evolve with the aid of all kinds of techno-gadgets, communication matters more and more. As a writer and speaker, I am continually assessing how we are communicating and how we are not.

I am a freelance writer and editor trying to help people say what they want others to hear and to write what they want others to see. It isn’t always easy, but with a little effort and a lot of typing we can communicate something that might possibly matter.
