Subject: [CPEO-MEF] A good communication Day
I was welcomedly informed by an old acquaintance (who is NOT old;-) that
one of the responses I replied to, specifically the "I cannot believe this"
statement, was directed at the statement from Grace about the threats to
her well-being and not sent as a response to my statements.

Well I did receive that response directly as a result of my initial long
posting where I discussed Grace in one of the paragraphs.  In turn, it is
not clear to me currently whather that post was directed at the outrageous
act of physical threats, the statment that threats were made or something I
said about the train that is coming. 

Thus, my point is only reinforced by the fact that Mr. Strauss took it one
way and I another from the responses we recieved. That point is - We all
need to be clear about what we are responding to and the point we are
trying to make, so a few detailing/clarifying sentences are always good to

AND OF COURSE FOREVER NOTING: responding is important even if we make a
slip up here and there on interpretation. And as Peter so pleasantly did
with me, lets understand that people will confuse lines of discussion on a
board like this and sometimes misinterpret what is said, so lets correct
with questions, humility and respect;-) 

I for one will always publicly acknowledge my mistakes and apologize as
need be. I make missteps or mistakes everyday as Ted Henry and sometimes
people take things as they are not intended due to my own oversight or
their own. Communication is an art and ever-changing dynamic, that is how
it is and often we need to go back and reclarify, apologize, etc. I know I
always keep this in mind in the work I try to do.

And by the way, i will promise to do my best to not beat a dead horse. I
only expanded on this simple exchange as a good example to assist this
board in communication in the new year.

Peace to All

Choo! Choo!
