“The most important thing in communication is to hear what isn’t being said.”
– Peter F. Drucker
hey, rambling–i’ve been meaning to ask you for a long time: what’s “the great drawin’ down”? where does that phrase come from?
what’s “the great drawin’ down”?
well there may be a more advanced etymology for the phrase but around here it means that you’re in trouble !
e.g Don’t say something like that or the boss will draw down on top of us.
It also means “to discuss something” with someone … e.g. did john draw down with you about the game ?
Everything was fine until you drew down about the Pope and his policies !
aha. a useful phrase. and a colorful one. thanks!
I’m loving your blog more every day!
Love that quote about communication!
Anyway…keep blogging away!
You’ve got a gift for “communication” yourself and, indeed, alot of us are “listening”!
thanks tom. i will be sure to check your blog out too.
