Turns of phrase

It's funny how something as simple as the way someone communicates, using language inculcated by years of service, can make the listener feel. Talking to Yosh, or Tony, or Carrie, or Dennis can sometimes bring to mind a place. It is a place that was never mine, but its echoes fill me with calm, and have an aura of purpose that envelopes me when they use language of that place for something we are going to do together. It doesn't matter if it is a serious purpose, or a trivial one. It is still a feeling. Welcoming the stranger.

I am the stranger. It is their world, was their world, but for a moment, they share it with me. It is good.
