A couple of days ago a friend and her daughter were headed for the exit as I was on my way to the pharmacy counter at the store. I called her by name as we exchanged greetings, but I did nothing to acknowledge the grade school daughter. It was partially because I couldn’t retrieve her name on short notice. The bigger issue is that I need to improve my attentiveness toward the other person (or people). I’d like to sharpen my peripheral consideration so the child, spouse, or friend who is with me or with the person I’m interacting with doesn’t feel they are outside the picture.
