Greetings Creatives,

What is conversation?

I post a lot of random pix on my Instagram feed.

In my mind I am trying to share a small moment of thinking with folx. A momentary point of view or a fleeting bit of thoughtfuel that connects with a deeper conversation that I am noticing with myself.

@rchids has stopped asking why I post the pix that I do and instead he recently mentioned that he has started to imagine the story that is happening around them.

My family on FB will often post up gifs.

Dog Huh GIF - Dog Huh What - Discover & Share GIFs

I like that.

It helps me to process how I see the world.

I think that is more than I could ever ask for in a conversation.

And if my conversations create conversations, that seems like a good direction to keep exploring.

Here’s a playlist of conversation starters.

If you are interested in attending the monthly Words Keep Wolves At Bay meet-ups, please drop a comment below and we can make arrangements for you to share your email with me.
