What makes a conversation good?
The parties in a conversation. The topic(s) of conversation. The physical setting. The extent of questioning, listening, affirming, challenging. Exchange and building up of ideas, sharing of knowledge. Sparring, ribbing, laughing, and thoughtful reflection. Authenticity, mutual respect and ease. And, even just the honest effort to put aside time for a proper conversation.
I had such a conversation today. Am thankful for it, and for the person I had conversation with.
