  •  a little like being a mediator too (0+ / 0-)

    One of the first lengthy profile I read about Obama was from the New Yorker, in 2007, and there was a section in there about listening, about making people heard, and it reminded me of mediation, which I've been trained in, and certainly has some parallels to aikido.

    Thank you for an excellent diary.
