What Is Relating?

What is relating? “It’s being so aware of the other person that, even if you have your back to them, you’re observing them. It’s letting everything about them affect you, not just their words, but also their tone of voice, their body language, even subtle things like where they’re standing in the room or how they occupy a chair. Relating is letting all that seep into you and have an effect on how you respond to the other person” ~ Alan Alda. I found this in his most recent book “If I Understood You, Would I Have This Look on My Face?”
I saw these people looking at the sunset along Hwy 1 at Big Sur, California and thought it was very touching. Usually I try to find the right quote for my photo, but in this case, I tried to find an image in my library to match what Alan Alda said.

“Bursts of gold on lavender melting into saffron. It’s the time of day when the sky looks like it has been spray-painted by a graffiti artist.” ~ Mia Kirshner. #Sunset in #Dublin, Ohio went from pink to orange to red and shades of glorious in between.
