Conversations are like hikes in the realm of thought.
Multiple people traversing ideas, concepts, memories, emotions. Together.
Once the conversation ends, it’s like a completed hike, a route you can re-trek, go back to explore even further.
Like a tracing of a route on a map, the conversation is almost like a work of art. A map of the world of thought created and experienced in-between those conversing.
Some conversations, like hikes, are scattered, going all over, making many detours.
Others are a nice straight path, easy to follow.
Other conversations can take many interesting turns, detours, and leave you somewhere totally unexpected.
Some are like climbing a mountain, difficult to follow the trails, requiring great effort, but the view from the top is extraordinary.
