A big part of my road trip is the conversations I’ll have with friends and strangers. My challenge will be to listen to what folk have to say, not to advocate.
I want to find out three things:
- What has changed over the past 50 years?
- What is America like now?
- And why?
I had a chance meeting with another individual who is having conversations. I came across Chancey Williams in Cheesman Park in Denver before I started on the road trip. He had set up a couple of chairs under the shade of a tree in the 36c heat of Denver.
I sat down with Chancey – it was a chance both to test out my conversation approach and to answer Chancey’s questions about what matters. I found it a valuable experience, and an example of what America needs at this time. Hopefully I can contribute through my road trip conversations.
Chancey has also prepared a reading list to help with effective conversations.
