monsterOf course there are monsters under the bed.

Everyone knows that.

The big question, then, is when one should begin a conversation with them.

Each one. One at a time.

Yes, a conversation.

As long as it remains quiet in the room, I make up in my imagination what is about to happen. What I make up is usually something pretty horrible. A pending disaster, a fatal mistake, a hidden land mine, an imminent collapse.

In a conversation, on the other hand, I am free to participate. I don’t have to lie in the dark and speculate darkly.

And maybe… just maybe… the monsters will participate too.

When I ask, “What do you want?”, there might just come an answer.
