If there is one thing in this lifetime that I am, and will forever be grateful to experience, it is those moments of long conversations. With friends over tea or practically anything. With a lover who listens. With a total stranger while on a bus ride. With strangers yet to be friends. With people you meet only once. Even with those you will meet again after all the odds.
I actually find it beautiful, every second of it. No, I don’t mean any romantic notion or association, like those in movies when characters are always bound to fall in love somewhere in the plot. I find it beautiful because in actual it is raw and unrehearsed and voices tremble and people stutter sometimes or look down or away when they are hesitant to say something, or look straight at you when they bare their souls. I find it… very human and very genuine. Each flaw. Each sincerity.
So, if there is one thing in this lifetime that I am, and will forever be grateful to have, it is those moments of long conversations. Those times that are never wasted and that make my life worth living.
