The Forgotten Art of Simple Conversation


The Forgotten Art of Simple Conversation.

It was hard to deny the fact the fact that my mind had started to wander from the task at hand. When this happens I usually look for something interesting to read. As long as my temporary distraction has nothing to do with the law, finance or politics it is safe to read. The title of this piece caught and captured my attention. The picture of the fallen tree piqued my curiosity. Like a fish hooked I took the bait and began to read. I fell into a trance reading this well written and thoroughly enjoyable post. By the time I entered the basement with you my eyes were wide open in anticipation of something other than a discussion on the importance of face to face, old fashion verbal, conversation. Your literary skills gave way to your forceful articulation of the theme of your piece. I should not have been surprised; it had to come sooner or later. This post reminded of the value of and need to converse with others. That personal connection allows us to bond with others on a very personal and intimate level. I don’t want to pat you too hard on the back, but you wrote a great post. Now I must get back to the grind.

I was raised in Great Neck, New York. In 1975 I received a B.A. degree from Alfred University. Three years later I graduated from the University of Michigan School of Law and have been practicing law in New York ever since. I am a Republican though I will vote according to the better policy or stance. Politics, law, and finance are my interests. I give special thanks to Cheryl Jones of Lexington South Carolina, my sister, and Eliana Trout Blanco of Santa Marta, Colombia, a one of the kind friend, for their contributions in the writing of this blog.
