People are like libraries—full of stories and ideas and questions. As an introvert, a writer, and a bookworm, it’s too easy for me to get locked in the cage of my own thoughts; it’s too easy to forget the value of dialog. Sometimes I just have to call up interesting people and talk to them. I have to force myself into a space where we can try on ideas and wrestle with interesting, difficult, complex and sometimes even ridiculous questions—like two people digging holes just to see what’s in the dirt.
