My mother once said to me “the best moments in your life will be conversations”. She was a wise person – a therapist and people would fly thousands of miles, just to be face-to-face with her for an hour. I wish I could do that today… and I wonder… how many of us have been inspired by great conversations at some time in our lives?
Growing up as a kid in a big city, it always struck me as strange that people don’t talk to each other. Now that I’m an adult myself, I still think it would be a good idea if we spoke to each other occasionally!
The Internet has shown us that no one wants to be part of an audience when they can be part of the conversation. Soon we’ll be able to do that in real life too.
Meeting and talking about life is something we’ve done for thousands of years, since civilization began: Sitting round fires, gathering at the village well, the market, the forum – and now – we’ll meet again in a Real Place.
