I was thinking that I don’t do much thoughtful discussion. One of the reasons is I don’t do much thoughtful reading. I read for fun, for escape, for a light lunch. I don’t read as much deep stuff as I used to. And maybe that’s one of the reasons I don’t have deep discussions.

Not that I know a whole lot of people these days who are interested in the same things I have been. Maybe that’s part of the problem.

I need to get some better reading books. I’d like some interesting, thoughtful books on topics I haven’t read on in a while. I remember last year reading a whole series of books on science, and science and religion. I enjoyed those. But I haven’t read anything like them in a while.
