Celebrating Humans (of New York)

I adore this website – I laugh, almost-cry, gasp, and awe (ahhh!) at humanity. It captures our craziness, our thoughtfulness, our capacity to endure; a little bit of storycatching happening on the interwebs.

Each post has a picture and a little write up that goes along with each photo. Sometimes profound. Sometimes silly. Check it out here. Thanks to my friend Wendy Bradley for sharing with me.

This one is my favourite so far:

“When I was younger, I thought listening was just about learning the contents of someone’s mind. I’d always try to finish their thoughts, just to show them that I knew what they were thinking. As I got older, I learned to listen better. I realized that by trying to anticipate their mind, I was ignoring their heart.”
