When he resided in southern California, he wrote a weekly column for the daily Anaheim Bulletin, which was carried for about six years, until The Joy of Conversation should be a pleasurable experience to its participants. It quickly ceases to be so when the motive of one of the participants is to hurl insults on another, and use dialogue as an excuse for verbal attacks and insults. Without a question, that would lead one nowhere, except into discord, and a gradual breakdown of personal communication, leading to its com plete dissolution. It has been correctly dialogue; they perform a monologue in noticed, one has the opportunity gently to indicate to the other party, ones lack of appreciation for that style of sation entails opportunities for par ticipation of all involved, of give-andtake, instead of merely hearing only whatever proceeds from the mouth of a domineering talker. Some persons want to be in charge, and think that appointing ones self to control the topic, the argu ments, and the timing of a conversa never the case! tion of any subject, should study and know in advance the proper etiquette to participate in productive conversa can and should be a time of mutual and countless other positive outcomes.

I however saw her perform a few times including at President Barak Obamas inauguration. When I heard that the Queen went into hospice care, I began preparing for the inevitable. But when I learned of her was not prepared for the news. I spent much of Thursday and Friday reading and listening to the many tributes pouring in for her, and they all painted a portrait of a woman who stood as a cultural icon around the globe. She was a singer, composer and an arranger who reigned over the worlds of R&B, pop, rock and gospel music for nearly six decades. But she was so much more. power and range, she was humble. The Queen was known to joy, with poignancy, with spiritual lift and, of course, with dancing. at the inauguration of three U.S. presidents: Jimmy Carter, Bill Clin ton, and Barack Obama. She also mingled and sang for Pope Francis in Philadelphia in 2015. Her music, rooted in gospel crossed myriad genres and boldly evoked and advanced the themes of the era.

I can only imagine the celebration there will be in heaven when all those great voices get together. Lets face it, there will be the Whitney Houston and so many more whom I fail to mention. While I am not in a hurry to see or hear them, I hope that when my time has come, I too will be welcomed to add some real baritone to that choir beyond the blue. While I am saddened by her passing, I am comforted knowing that she is no longer suffering from that darn cancer that snatched her away from us and that she is in the Lords arms. Farewell Queen, rest in peace.

In most cases, seeking to resolve them is not pretty nor easy, but very necessary. When someone begins to feel slighted by their partner in some way, the relationship can turn ugly quickly. These disputes can result from many factors, but commonly they are spawned by breakdowns in communica lawsuits can begin to soar. Partnerships formed with the best of intentions and greatest of expectations can be destroyed because of a single event and often, un necessarily. This is why addressing and working through the problem with care is essential.

Reasons for this are many: Legal disputes can be costly; arbitrary; Courtroom outcomes usually fail to resolve the relational and emotional issues involved; wisdom and healing power can be ex cluded from the process. a matter to court is unavoidable. One or more parties may be unwilling to turn to a mediator, or an arbitrator, to allow them to work toward acceptable resolutions. However, that is unfortunate because while it may result in a legal judgment, the likelihood of injured feelings and inability to sustain once-enjoyable business rela tionships is extremely high.
