Creative Edge, Toronto: Article on Listening

"My old pal Harry and I are walking in the park, improvising like two jazz musicians - except we're playing with words not melodies. He throws out a line. I have a comeback. He does a riff on my response. Pretty soon we're laughing so hard we're crying. Eventually we collapse, exhausted, on a park bench.

"That was amazing, Harry," I say, "Why don't we do it more often?".

I'm just being social, not really expecting a response, but Harry takes my question seriously. He leans closer, lowering his voice, like he's confiding in me."
