Here are some people's reactions:
We overheard one women talking with her hospitalized sister on the phone. She was reading humorous quotes off the "body" and "fun" Dialogue panels
to help cheer her up. It was wonderful hearing them laugh together on the cell phone and to have Dialogue spark that healing laughter.
A conservative business man was standing next to a liberal couple while reading quotations on the "life" panel. One particular
quote seemed to really resonate with the couple so they turned to the man and said, "now doesn't that make your day?" He responded back and they began
talking about life and politics together.
I was approached by one young artist who said she had been trying to overcome a mental block in her studio. For some reason she just could not seem to get
back into her painting. After browsing through Dialogue for about an hour, however, she became inspired and was heading back to her studio to work on some revelations she had.
