A tale I heard

Oprah Winfey on what she's learned from interviewing more than 37,000 people:

"Everyone you meet just wants to be seen and heard… After every interview, you know what they would say? ‘Was that okay? How was that? How did I do?’ In one form or another, somebody always said that to me.

So I started to think, ‘Wow, that’s so interesting. Beyonce is asking me if she was okay after she just taught me how to twerk.’

I can tell you, in your daily encounters, in your kitchen, in your conference rooms, in your work, in all of your relationships... that is what every person you encounter is looking to know. Did you see me? Do you hear me? And every argument is about that."

A tale I saw

It's Still A Fucking Poem by Mark Grist

A tale I wrote

He had a big nose
and she had a big nose

but they never got too close

because of their
exceptionally long toes.
