….The first thing we do is take in air, cry.

Conversing looks like a tool. But is it? It seems to be what life does—interacts, intercourses with its environment. Life eats and eliminates—it takes in and leaves behind what it has used. Waste is food for other life. Sentient life takes in feelings. Intelligent life takes in concepts and ideas and words and emotions—and this is food for us. We live on, are birthed as persons by, conversation. Basic, primal, rudimentary, foundational, seminal. The first thing we do is take in air, cry.
