The essences

What are the essences of conversation done well? Subject matter that engages the future, that moves us toward humanity. How does that differ from chit chat? Chit chat says “I want to stay engaged with you. I like you. Our relationship matters.” Conversations that count go further and reach out beyond the interpersonal to the extra-personal. They are community wide in intended effects.

They intend therefore to engage more than one other person. They are we-centered, where We is 3 or more.

They engage each person’s imagination.

They are about now and future.
