Wishing and doing

  1. Who article is lovely and I’m really glad that you made the misread that you did because I think the time spent pondering the distinction is really valuable and interesting.

    What I mean is that I enjoy rich, meaningful conversation, and I want to understand better what makes good conversation good so that I can have more of it in my life.

    Good conversation isn’t too hard in theory. It’s taking the time and energy to create space with another person. It’s being fully present, aware of not just the explicitly stated conversation but also the unspoken conversation (think Hills Like White Elephants), and a huge heap of vulnerability and psychological safety. Of course, practice is another thing entirely.
