finding meaning in the seemingly mundane

i hope that this new endeavor will prove to be something meaningful not only to myself, but to the people i hope to meet along the way and who will share parts of their souls with me so that i may be enriched.

It has been an idea in the back of my mind for a long time now, an avenue to combine 3 things i love: talking to strangers, story-telling, and writing.

i want to interact with the people that i cross paths with because i believe that everyone has something worth sharing.

The lessons that all of us learn in our lifetimes are too numerous to document. this is my personal effort to soak in the human experience. To explore conversation with people in passing. To shape [and be shaped by] the world around me.

Life is too short not to talk to the other people who are passing through it with you. There is no interaction that is unimportant and every interaction is an opportunity to learn something new.
