273

After having written about not liking to listen as I walk, I gave it another chance. I discovered that it IS indeed possible.

If I pretend it’s the radio playing in the background, then it’s doable. My attention is able to dip in and out. I’m able to do as much reflecting as I want, and when I’m done I can take up the thread again.

That’s the advantage of listening to a narrative. And that’s HOW you should listen too, not by striving to catch every word and plot element.


Humans learn from narratives in more ways than one.
