I’m quite a conversation geek.
I know that stems from my father, who to the bone is a relatively anti-social intellectual whom, as he’s matured, places far more value on discourse than he does on emotional interfacing.
He writes plays, as a hobby, and he writes the kind of plays that explore deeply philosophical topics.
He’s not purely interested in high-brow conversation, but he’s also not immune to the geek rush he gets when someone engages him in some sort of argument that explores the intricacies of American history, human thought processes, or sociological implications of the generation gap and emerging technology.
I’ve inherited that geek tendency.
Lately I’ve had the fortune of great conversation.
I’ve met people like Nate and Mari and Nicole and each new conversation boasts excitement around what’s possible tomorrow.
Writing plays is an effort dedicated to pointing at humanity and saying, “Wow!”.
I like people who feel the excitement about human potential that I do when I look at what people come up with when they contemplate a better tomorrow.
What gets you riled up?
What ideas are you excited about?
I want to know.
