Endangered conversations

How will you go about finding that thing the nature of which is totally unknown to you?*

Most endangered [conversation]: the kind in which you listen intently to another person and expect that he or she is listening to you; where a discussion can go off on an tangent and circle back; where something unexpected can be discovered about a person or an idea.**
(Sherry Turkle)

I love the conversations in which someone see something new. The only thing better is when there are surprises for everyone.

The world deserves risky and adventurous conversations.
