As always, your post makes me pause and reflect, think about what I am investing my time in and its worth. This time, I was also reminded of this quote by Humberto Maturana: We learn, adapt, and bring forth our worlds through the networks of conversation in which we participate.

Thank you, Louise! "Conversations that Matter" has become my phrase of 2012 and I'm really looking at how I can hone my skills and take the risks that we need to take to get there. Just publishing this Manifesto was, for me, a way to start a risky conversation, saying "this is what I believe in--let's talk."

I love that you try to have these same kind of conversations on your blog--so much to talk about! :-)

Michele,
Another wonderful post. You have captured the imagination, miracle and alchemy of conversation. I truly believe that it is conversation, that will transform our world.
We have to reclaim the time and space to create and support conversation. Viewed as a waste of time in most workplaces, it is precisely the richness and potential of conversation that will bring deeper meaning to work.
And most important as you say, "We need to use conversations to re-discover our common vision and re-define the Common Good. We need to use them to find our gifts and to bring them into the world."

I love that you translated it, Sergio! I'd love it translated into as many languages as possible so we could have as many conversations going on around the world as we could! :-)

Great suggestion, Bob! I was talking with someone in France earlier this week and we were discussing the cultural ritual of food that is more prevalent in other countries than the US. I think you're right that great food adds to the ambience of great company and great conversation, but it's something that Americans often don't make the time and space for. We definitely need to add that to the list!

Michele, Thanks for the post and the challenge. I am particularly interested in how we all can return to the ritual of table ~ where good food, great company and important conversations bring us together.
As we take time to listen, spark, engage let us also take time around table to share the abundance we have.
