A critical aspect of good communication skills is remembering these details and then using them to advance your goals. If you write a letter to someone and remember to ask about their wife or mother, they pick up on that.

The lookout tower is my favorite facility in the park. I would go to the top of the tower every time to feel the gentle sea breeze and fresh air. It is just my imagination as I never go there in summer, but I bet it would be so relaxing to enjoy the wind after sweating. What is more, it is fun to observe things happening around from the lookout tower. Sometimes I see families flying kites or riding bike, the blue sky is just the best canvas for the colorful kites to decorate with.
