a reminder to myself

"Old people like for others to listen to them.  In some places we have groups of Co-Workers whose main responsibility is to listen.  They visit typical homes, especially of older people, sit down with them, and let them talk and talk to give them the satisfaction of being listened to.  The older people, I repeat, love this even though they may not have much else to say other than unimportant things - to others, obviously, not to them - that happened a long time ago. 

"To listen to someone who has no one to listen to him is a very beautiful thing."

Mother Teresa
