talking is thinking is living

I love how my conversations become policy for me.
Some of my greatest thinking and ideas comes in the middle of a conversation, not before. I think outloud, and for many of those I talk with, this is annoying, they want the final answer, the clear logical package. Others enjoy ideation, and that's when conversations are the most fun for me.
Little emails I write eventually become mission statements for me. My assessments of situations as described to others become then the floating theme for the rest of the affair.
this is so vague I know, I don't know.
When people ask me how things are going, I can't help but research my emotions and fish for the most summary response. I eventually then look back more at those little conversations for where I was the most lucid about the situation.
I have plenty of time to write in my diaries and reflect about my work experiences at Google, but it's when an old friend prompts me, that I really lay the truth down.
