Getting to Know You – of bags, books, and what makes us happy


Snippets is where I explore the facets of personality and human nature that intrigue and confuse me. I mostly do this through snippets of conversations between people who could be you, or me, or people we know.

In writing this most recent piece, I wanted to play with the idea that our hobbies and passions are windows to who we are, and the somewhat callous way we sometimes ignore these windows when the designs don’t match our particular tastes.

Wow! This piece really spoke to me! Thanks so much for sharing, Hengtee!

I'm also believer that a mutual respect for and interest in each others passions is vital for a strong relationship, be that romantic or platonic!

I can't wait to read what you share next!

Wow, yeah, another great one HT. The way you analyse all these little bits of life really resonates with me, every time!

Thanks for the kind words, guys!

Really wonderful to read about the joy and art of conversation, listening, and empathy.
