I welcome them.
I loathe small talk. Talk with friends that you could be having with a stranger on the street.
I wish for conversations about what is heavy on your heart. What you think about late at night when you can't sleep.
The deep conversations that make you feel less alone, less different in this world.
Take a swim with me. Let us dive down underneath the shallow conversations of those around us. Deep into the cold, dark water to the warm, welcoming currents below. Let us stay here in this deep place and unburden our souls.
Come on in. The water is lovely.
