Conversations are intrinsic to all of the moments in our life. They allow us to put perspective on the four major W’s we ponder. Who, What, Where, Why? Humans are constantly trying to place themselves within the spaces of everyone else. We search for the common denominators, always asking “Can I relate to you?” “Can you understand me?” We find simple joy in knowing that others enjoy their morning coffee just like us, or take pride in the fact that we are not like all of those weird caffeine freaks that make a scene every time they did not get to stop for their Venti mocha latte! Conversations with people outside of my home, outside of this country, have always allowed me to understand that despite any difference we will always be in search of connection. That, my dear embracers begins with a conversation, like the one I am beginning with you, right here, in this quiet moment. Feel free to embrace my extended hand, my abstract painting, and respond.
