I like to write. Especially when I don't have to. When I can just free-flow words to the screen and have them take on entirely new meanings. Nuance and subtlety. And the ability to push crap out of my head that otherwise would take up space in my consciousness.
But actually talking with someone takes an entirely different part of your brain, and all of the filters and walls and defense mechanisms that we have built to handle everyday life get in the way, like using clumsy tongs to manipulate radioactive waste.
