It's very true. When people don't share a language but want to communicate they use every means at their disposal to communicate but with people who speak the same language it is easy to become complacent and assume they understand what we are saying
For me this is a sweet message and goes to show that you communicate really well Larry, language shared or not. I can attest to that. :-)
Digging deeper, this little gem reminds us that nonverbal communication is also very important...words will fail at some point to express what we feel but actions speak volumes. I love your syntuits, as always.
