conversations

Agreeable conversations are nice, but casual arguments feed the soul.
We often find ourselves in conversations where we blindly agree with someone even though deep in our minds, we know our views are different. Why? What for? To be liked?

I have been rereading Kenko’s “A Cup of Sake Beneath the Cherry Tree” for a while and I came across this paragraph about on conversations about the fleeting nature of life.
There is some pleasure to be had from agreeing with the other in general talk that interests you both, but it’s better if he takes a slightly different position from yours. “No, I can’t agree with that,”
...This sort of lively discussions is a pleasant way to pass the idle hours, but in fact, most people tend to grumble about things different from oneself, ...such men are far indeed from the true friend after your own heart, and leave you feeling quite forlorn.’
For someone who dislikes debates, I do enjoy casual discussions wherein I get to see how another person sees the same picture from a different perspective.

chaotic tales II: untuned thoughts

it has been a while? almost a year.
a lot has changed. a lot has happened. things have been realised and now,
rather than being enclosed in the flesh of my pink coloured room, i spend my days surrounded by green.
