Idle Chatter is a throwback to the end of my adolescence when I was an unlikely participant in sophisticated, purposeful conversations with two people I idolized. I would try to keep up and interject with what I thought were deep and meaningful thoughts but I was often dismissed and told “that is idle chatter, find some substance.” While I still remain blissfully naive at times, I like to think that I have found some of that substance with a bit more to contribute these days.
