Creating Rapport: People don't care until you care. Extend yourself and care first for others. Conversations: In order to stimulate conversations use Who? What? Where? When? Why? questions. Ask open-ended questions that evoke more than "yes" or "no." Maybe, ask "What do you think?" Listen with your heart and head. Share yourself using some responses from their statements. Encourage "verbal ping-pong" in which the conversation goes back and forth easily between both people.

“Doc, it’s Pete Davis. My brother, Jim, shot himself straight through his right shoe. We’ve been deer hunting. He’s bleeding bad.” My dad, Milton Pepper, a country doctor in Salt Lake City, told Pete to bring his brother to our home immediately. Dad had set up a surgery on the ground floor of our two-story home as his own ER. My memory of this incident, and other days like this, especially during the hunting season, is jam-packed with the scared faces of these men who paraded, with one injury or another, into the tiny first-aid clinic.

She explained that the day commemorates Dr. Seuss' birthday, March 2, and celebrates the joy of reading. “Read Across America is the largest celebration of literacy in America,” she said.

Many first-time viewers of the art from this diverse cultural region are often overwhelmed with the Asian art collection at the Norton Simon Museum. In this lecture, Edward Wilkinson, independent specialist in Indian, Himalayan and Southeast Asian art and member of the International Society of Appraisers, provides a perspective on the often-overlooked details that combine to create the visual and emotional impact of Asian art. The aim will be to consider the pure aesthetic beauty of each object or painting, which will in turn provide an alternative path to a greater understanding of Asian art. Norton Simon Museum is located at 411 W. Colorado Blvd.
