In a perfect world, people would listen more. Rational conversations would lead to an open flow of ideas that ultimately would lead to a better place to live.
But it's not a perfect world. Most of us are self-absorbed and can't wait for our chance to speak and we look straight at a person while they're talking but we're really just thinking about what we're going to contribute to the dialogue only it's not a dialogue if you're reciting an internal monologue to yourself and you don't actually process what's being said so you selfishly close yourself off to different opinions and ideas and it all just swirls around in your brain, never to be retained, ultimately a shame.
Well, I'm going to try and contribute to that perfect world and start a conversation with whoever is reading this blog.
Here's how it's going to work. I'll ask a question at the end of this blog, and then post my answer as the 1st comment. Then, you can post a comment with your answer.

What's the first album you ever purchased? And when did you purchase it?
