A Rare Bird

You get a job at a new company, let’s say it’s pretty big, maybe 300 people in your building, and out of those 300 people there is, if you are lucky, one person who thinks about things at a philosophical level, or at the level of principles or meaning, and has a strong curiosity and interest in things, and wants to talk about things at that level. That person is your immediate friend, no matter what personality quirks or faults they may have, or even if they don’t exactly like you, or maybe you them. Mainly because it is like water in a desert to be met with engagement instead of rolls of the eyes or “you’re so funny with your ideas” kinds of reactions.

Richard is one of those people, that’s why I subscribe.
