I admire a man with a beautiful mind. When a man posses the ability to teach me something, whether it be about life or myself, it always moves me. To hear a strong man discuss politics, literature, religion, life, love, success and a multitude of other topics, with such ease and enthusiasm…well *fans myself*
I can’t do a thing but smile whenever I talk to a certain person. I could listen to him talk forever. I feel like I learn something every time I exit a conversation with him. Breath taking actually. Refreshing to not discuss the latest underground mixtape, gossip in the entertainment community, sex or how much money he’s been getting. There is more to life, and damnit he understand that.
There is no reason why I should be shocked every time I meet a man with a beautiful mind or formal education. What does this say about me? It says I talk to sub-par individuals.
My dad used to always tell me “I take in stray dogs”…
I never quite understood what he meant by that until now.
