Today I visited a dermatologist. After the consultation he asked: “Are you open-minded?”
Then we had a more private discussion, about the universe, energy, answers and questions. It was one of strangest but also one of the more impressive conversations I had in many months.
I would say that it was intimate. One could argue that all encounters with dermatologists are intimate, that we experience intimacy when we visit our doctor, but of course there are degrees of engagement and intimacy.
The unexpected (emotional) intimacy, the goodness of the stranger is a source of bliss.
