Thinking out-loud. Or typing out-loud.
Can you reason your way to love? Can you talk yourself into loving something, or someone? Can you talk someone else into loving something, or someone?
Can you make someone love what you love?
Can you get them to care about the things you care about? If you think something is beautiful, funny, amazing, can you convince someone else that it is? Is it about your powers of persuasion? Or does it just happen? Is it a matter of taste? Or temperament? Or what?
How do we get others to see what we see? How do we get others to agree with us?
Sometimes it seems we all live in our own private realities. Sometimes we collide, sometimes we run in parallel. Once in a great while you meet someone who you can totally, completely connect with. It's rare. But it does happen. You can see what they see. You can understand them on a deep level. And every conversation is a revelation.
Is that just luck? Destiny?
