The Great Divide

The Great Divide © Steven Willard

Separated by age, gender, point of view and experience; how do we find common ground? How do we prevent the over-loud voices coming from the extremes from drowning out the more reasonable dialogues taking place closer to the center? How do we keep a skeptical eye on the demagogues*without letting our attention on them become fixation?

We talk to one another.

*We don’t need a tweeting Cleon for our time.

    Its a great concept Steven but the center has seemed to evaporate. All people hear are extreme points of views. I wish Washington would return to governing our nation instead of catering to their base 🙂 Excellent image for this post.


  3. Yes, nice composition for this post. I would throw in “emphatic listening” to the recipe.
