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.

Yosemite Falls

 

Yosemite National Park has to be one of the most beautiful parks in the US. Everywhere you look, there is another breathtaking scene or something majestic to look at. The weather changes by the minute, going from hot and steamy to cool and foggy to cloudy and rainy and back to cold and snowy. Photographing this park was so wonderful for me that I had to go back just 5 months after my first visit. The photos I’ve shared are just a few of the thousands that I took. This one is a view of Yosemite Falls that thousands of people see each day when visiting Yosemite.The falls are flowing more than normal because of the huge amount of snow they got this winter. So I was fortunate to see all of the waterfalls when the water was really gushing!
