The kind of conversation I’m interested in is one which you start with a willingness to emerge a slightly different person. It is always an experiment, whose results are never guaranteed. It involves risk. It’s an adventure in which we agree to cook the world together and make it taste less bitter.

To Practice This Thought:
Visualize cooking together with your conversation partners, imagining their remarks as ingredients being added to a new dish. Describe how the dish tastes.
