Tim and I notice more and more often that conversation in groups is trivial and meaningless. It's unfortunate. People are fascinating when we take the time to talk about things that matter.

Will you have meaningful conversation around your Thanksgiving dinner table? Ron Gross has several ideas for ensuring you do. Why does it matter? Meaningful conversation is one of the ways lifelong learners continue to enrich themselves.

I was pondering the conversation around the Thanksgiving table. I am going to visit families that I have not seen in awhile, so wanted to make the short time that I had with them meaningful. Also, to leave a heartfelt feeling that they were important to me. Thank you for giving me guidance on how to approach the conversation subject.
