"We were the talkers, the chatty Cathy's, the ladies that lunch. And now we were silent." And then the conversation died. #Putdownthephone

The Day Conversation Died
The Day Conversation Died
www.linkedin.com Conversation died last week. After a good run, it flat lined and passed peacefully at the lunch table. I was not prepared for this day. A day, that in a matter of minutes obliterated conversation...

    #3 Thanks for commenting Brian. It is reassuring to hear your experience. I believe that conversation is still alive here- just a bit lost at times. It's the blessing and curse of technology. I enjoy the art of conversation and plan to do my part to ensure its prosperity. There is so much to be learned from engaging in conversation with others - and you never know when that conversation may lead to friendship. Thanks for your comments.

    I find conversation - and upon deep topics - is alive and well overseas. I had a GREAT 5 hour conversation with a complete stranger on everything from politics, economy, war, fashion, food and our favorite books with a complete stranger. She is now one of my best friends. Always great to rattle sabers with her. Smart girl, quick wit. (It was amazing that the entire night was in Russian - which is my second language)
