When I talk to my Mother she is an endless stream of things that are going on in her life. First, she'll tell me everything she's done. Then she'll start on about all the things that her friends have done. Once she's gotten to the end of that, she seems to think she's got nothing left to say. This is... Simply the way that she relates to people.

I could care less what her friends have done. I could also care less what she has done, quite a lot of the time. Often, she seems keen to tell me about dramas that are going on between her and one of my sisters. Or between that same sister and her neighbour... Or someone else in that sisters life... My mother talks about this particular sister an awful lot because this particular sister is a constant source of drama...

It is something to talk about for the concretely inclined.

I'm more a person of ideas... Ideas in books I've read, talks I've been to, just ideas that I have in my head. Dreams and aspirations. I don't know...

Can you turn the conversation to things like this, at all?

Maybe these sorts of things are where you choose to invest your time / energy?
