making conversation

It’s easy to talk about the weather. You can talk about it with anyone at any time.

But you don’t really get anything out of it, you don’t really learn anything about the person you’re talking to.

They might as well be a machine.

People have so much more to offer. But we have to give them the chance.

What is it that makes them uniquely them?

Who are they, what are they doing, why are they doing it?

Those are the kind of questions we have to ask.

The answers are far more interesting than whether they think it’s going to rain later.

Although sometimes that’s useful to know.
