I'm always drawing while you talk, squares, rectangles, brick walls, floor tiles, formica patterns, stone walls, rock gardens, mostly rectangular stuff. I call it all "squares" though most of it doesn't fit the definition.
You think maybe I'm not listening.
That's not it. I hear every word and will actually remember more this way than if I try to listen without drawing. Squares keep me focused and help sort out distractions. This is part of a drawing I did during a statistics lecture.The subject is sample size and randomizing.
Drawing squares keeps me here with you, physically and mentally. These walls are not partitions between us, but around the conversation. They help me include you in my world.
