LEARNING TO LISTEN TO WISER VOICES

Mar 26th, 2013 | By Dr Jerry D Elrod | Category: Senior Moments Blog

Age is one of those episodes that keeps getting our attention. It interrupts us in the middle of a conversation, when we have forgotten the subject. It leads us into discussions we know nothing about, but pretend we do. It demonstrates that our attention span may be detoured. It illustrates that our capabilities at keeping the conversation going is something of a challenge.

Our once lauded ability to be astute in sustaining an intelligent discourse, is somewhat challenged. We just don’t have the sharpness of tongue nor possess the quickness of thought we once did. The consequences of such frequent reminders to our lessening of verbal skills and a sharp repertoire nudges us to be less verbal, more anxious, slightly less self confident in conversation.
