I have finally realized what people I am most joyful around. Apart from the obvious traits like being jolly, a good storyteller, or essential traits like kindness, concern and empathy - what really gets me clicking with someone is their curiosity.
Without curiosity, there is no appetite for life.
The curious turn the stone that I am. They poke me like most people don't. They get me thinking about things I've forgotten. Running into them is like eating a bland bowl of oatmeal then biting on a sweet raisin.
I want more raisins in my life.
