Lately I've been chatting with a friend of mine from grad school. It's probably because we have nothing else to do at the moment that we go online the same time... which is most of the time. We never really had talk-talks. I didn't hang out with her as often as I did with others. But whenever we did find ourselves in the zen talking to each other, it was always about something deep, existential, or even philosophical. It was mostly about life.
It's no different now. We just do it online. Buzzing each other in messenger or reading each others' blog.
It's comforting to talk to someone who knows how you feel and understands where you're coming from.
It's just another Zen after all.
