& what I have learned… Bottom line?

Conversation is the whole darn karmic enchilada (WDKE for short).

Meaning, it’s the whole darn shebang.

Talking is wondrous & inspirational & energizing & even, in my view, miraculous.

Talking & conversation

  • make us feel better…they heal
  • lighten our (emotional) load
  • teach us things
  • spark inspiration
  • spark memories
  • sort through mental/emotional knots & confusion of all kinds
  • create intimacy
  • make us feel connected...they fuse connections


Talking through things shines light on truth – on areas of confusion – draws attention to possible bumps in the road ahead.


  • enlightens
  • joins
  • inspires
  • connects **


As Michael Silverblatt, host of KCRW’s ‘Bookworm’ radio show, said so brilliantly, “It’s one of the secrets of the world. We all have the key to one another’s locks. But until we start to talk, we don’t know it."

Is that not a humdinger?? And it’s true.

‘nuff said already.

Let the conversation begin!


** I've just noticed my repetition of the word connection. I've decided to let it stand. What could be more important than connection, & emphasizing its importance??

p.s. what I have also learned:

What I have also learned is that conversation is meant to be honest; there is an element of telling the truth…yes??

& if you dam up the flow

& keep the truth/your truth locked up inside

The spirit shrivels.

It isn’t just the truth that begins to shrivel

The spirit does also.

It has to flow

& keep flowing

Otherwise, negative thoughts & deeds & thoughts of deeds just keep recycling & recycling & recycling

And that is no good for a living spirit…or world…is it?

p.p.s. several postings about telling the truth


'Quote of the Day' with this post: “Rick wants a great big crowbar to crack him open so he can take whatever creature is sitting inside him and shake it clean like a rug, then rinse it in a cold, clear lake, and then put it under the sun to heal and dry and grow and come to consciousness again with a clear and quiet mind.” – from the Douglas Copeland novel Player One: What is to Become of Us
