This lady is great! What a hoot! LOL!! :D

Thankfully, I don't suffer from the "audience with eyes glazed-over" syndrome... because I WATCH FOR IT, and do my very best NOT to talk over people's heads! My heart's desire is to be UNDERSTOOD by my audience... not befuddle them! :)

You see... back in the mid 1980's, I learned A LOT from someone whom I still highly regard (and pray for when I think of him!) about this... he almost seemed to revel in how quickly he could get people's eyes to glaze-over, and I WATCHED IT HAPPENING! I learned that this is NOT effective communication! I could communicate with him, because I understand MOST of the "Engineer Speak" he was using... but his audiences didn't. (Sometimes, I offered a "translation", later.) ;)

I consider those lessons a blessing from the LORD, and I think Him for it! :) I want my audience to understand what I'm trying to convey to them, so I do my best to break it down into layman's terms, and even use car or sports analogies as needed. Then, when I see the "light go on" in their faces, I know it worked. :) MISSION ACCOMPLISHED! :)

Hey, after all, we are in the BUSINESS (or MINISTRY) of COMMUNICATIONS... so...

That's my 5c worth on a very pleasant evening here in CT. :)

God bless!!
