Welcome to the Something 2 Talk About Now website. I'm so glad you're here! I hope you find this to be a place where you can find things to read or watch that expand your view of the world; that possibly cause you to change your perspective and/or make you think about things in a way you haven't considered before or, alternatively, confirm that your thoughts on an issue won't change; that encourages thoughtful, spirited and respectful conversations with people you care about; that teaches you something you never knew before; and that spreads a little more joy, compassion and positivity in this world we call home.
This is a space where you can:
read articles and short stories about a wide variety of issues in the Articles section;
spend some time thinking about privately or discussing with family and friends the topics in the Something 2 Think About Now section;
find a new great book or movie (or read or watch again an old favorite on the lists) in the Books and Movies sections; and
travel vicariously through the stories and photos shown in the Get Away section.
Conversations can take place anywhere and at any time. You can have a great conversation with yourself (as an introvert, this may be my personal favorite type), with a loved one who died, with a couple people or an entire roomful, with someone who is no longer in your life due to distance or other reasons, or with your pet. No matter how and when they take place, conversations in which you share ideas, dreams, opinions, fears, successes or even just the plot of a great book or movie makes for a richer, more interesting life. I find that the best conversations are those when I do more listening than talking. Check out the Articles section for the "Listening With Intentionality" article for my take on that.
