In Praise of Tangential Conversations

I spent the afternoon with two of my dear friends having a wonderfully relaxing conversation that went all over the place.

It was delightful to have my brain off-leash and to feel safe that I would be listened to and understood.

Our topics were broad-ranging, minuscule and enormous, superficial and nuanced – we covered it all.

It was full of ideas and connection and absolutely perfect.

I wish everyone had the same opportunity on a regular basis.
