Conversation enriches the understanding, but solitude is the school of genius. ----- Edward Gibbon
Real conversation is such a rarity. I've been engaged in it for the last 2-3 hours and it's amazing. You can learn a great deal about yourself and the world when you're having true, engaged, meaningful conversation. I need more of that in my life. I'm not sure how to find it, but I know I need more of it.
I also need a lot of quiet time to process, but that I seem to find easily. The conversation is a bit more difficult.
