It’s Listening

by Eve Livingston

Stacy Westfall has said that many people describe her as a “horse whisperer,” but explains, “it isn’t whispering… it’s listening.”

I feel very strongly that if human beings are capable of this–communicating with an animal so much more powerful than ourselves–we have no reason to feel there is any limit to our capacity to communicate with one another.

Patience, it seems to me, is not just a virtue; it’s quite likely the key to our survival.
