Dan likes to listen to peoples stories, experiences or thoughts on a specific topic; good, bad or indifferent. Being slow to speak and quick to listen will reveal more of the story being told exposing more details and emotion and a truer relationship with another person.
Stories and experiences of everyday people are just as great if not greater than those that are in the headlines and history books. Everyday insight is lost.
There are and will always be many questions without answers and stories never told or documented. History and wisdom is lost.
