what’s your conversation?

The conversations we have and what we entertain ourselves with mentally can present a clear picture of us individually and collectively. I just wonder what it is we talk about or concern ourselves with, and whether or not it proffers any benefit, individually or collectively to us.

I even will not use myself as a beacon; for I know I tend to be one that maintains a destroyed and cynical locution on the world which many I suspect subscribe as psychotic and awkward. So I would go out on a limb and infer that it may go something like this.

We possess a keen interest in Hollywood for one. Folks that we do not know and do not know anything about us. Who marrying who, how much their ring cost and who is having whose baby. Why, as I believe these folks are not thinking about us and what we do?

On the local, it may echo something like this: Who’s dating who? Who has fake hair and who doesn’t? Who’s man cheating on whom? Who just got of jail or who think they are all that. Who is having whose baby and how many baby mommas’ he has? Who can or cannot afford something or who is a thug or not a thug, if the example is music?

Wonder why we don’t talk about who much money we losing by not taking advantage of capitalism outside of sports and entertainment? What stocks will make me the most money in short or long term? Why my school awards my child with A's yet he barely reads on a forth grade level?

The conversations we have tell a lot about a person. Let us see if we can challenge ourselves to talking about things that are more likely to have a major impact on our lives as opposed to subjects that do not.

In response to your essay “What’s your conversation?” I must agree with the concept and arrangement of your thoughts, but I feel compelled to take it one step further. See, while we busy ourselves on the lifestyles of the rich and famous, or even the local hoodrat…each day that passes (and we take it for granted) is a day closer to the reality that we are going to leave this place, and all those things will have no meaning…so instead of what’s your conversation, I argue… ‘What’s your purpose’. We were all placed on this earth for a reason. I don’t think the reason is to get caught up on the ‘Who’s, doing what’, but to concentrate one’s attention on their own self. This is the phenomenon of the Broken Legacy.

while i think your argument has merit, i would say that there is room for conversation for entertainment, although i don't think the entertainment has to be discussion about other folk as the examples you've provided here.

there should be a balance between introspection, empowerment, and entertainment. that'd be the most accurate reflection of who we are as individuals.
