By a good ole’ conversation I mean a real one. Not small talk. Not trying to please. Not hiding yourself behind a false image.
A real conversation is when you are totally present, feeling, and open to being modified.

The perfect excuses to not get out and be exposed to a world beyond your current thinking – a world of connection and possibilities outside of your present reality.
In that type of conversation there are no rules.
That’s where the juice of life is.
