Got a comment recently from a reader who asked about the name of this blog,
Continuing the Conversation.
“This is the first time I’ve written and we’ve never spoken. What conversation are we continuing?”
I believe in the power of communication. We need to keep the conversation going if we are going to resolve our differences and solve our problems. Mark Twain said, “There are no strangers, only friends you haven’t met.” Or maybe that was Annette. (readers, if you don’t know who “Annette” is ask your parents.) We may not have conversed before but if you’ve read anything I’ve written, or you know me, you know there are few things I like more than a good conversation. And I’ll keep talking into the wee hours. Because I believe that if we continue the conversation long enough we will find common ground. Or at the very least we’ll agree to disagree. That’s fine too. We don’t have to come around to your or my way of thinking except to agree to continue the conversation.
Because as long as we’re talking there is hope.
That’s why whether we have spoken a hundred times or never at all, I want to Continue the Conversation.
Only the best,
