Listening

I know I have written about this before. But I am a visual person. I love movies, TV, Theater, video games and just about anything that I can watch with my eyes. I forget sometimes that my wife who is my soul mate and lifelong partner is quite the opposite. She is a listening person. She prefers to hear her entertainment. The way to her heart is through sounds. She is a music fan but not only that but her emotions are affected more by the tone or sound of something than mine are.

Tonight on a whim we decided to go to a local pub we have never been to and listen to a neighbor friend perform his own songs. He is very good and we don't get to see him that often. It was fun sitting just listening to him play. Even better it was what she likes to do which we don't do often enough. I don't know why lack of auditory interest gets so overshadowed by my visual interest but it does.

I need to work on that for her sake.

Pretty common phenomenon, really. Women tend to be more audio-stimulated, men more visual. Don't feel too bad. Girls are weird. ;)

LOL! Yes we are.

And I am perfectly fine with that.

Cheers!
