Prelude to a conversation

It's the waiting... You sit there and you look around and you wonder "Is it going to work this time? Am I really that interesting to begin with?". And you sip your water, chasing doubts away, trying to make yourself comfortable, listening to conversations, making sure everything's ready, checking every detail once, twice, a thousand times over; even though none of it matters anymore.

Then the lights go out and words need to fill the silence, images need to fill the darkness. And all you can really hope for is a conversation...

Many thanks to l'IRIS for hosting the PROXIMITY talk last night. I had a blast :)
