While groping to define provisionally and partly what a particular concept may mean, we gain insight into what it can do.

It is in the groping that the valuable work lies- Mieke Bal
The word companion means friend - someone or something you spend time with.

“Companion” is derived from the Latin “com” meaning with
and the French “panis” meaning bread,

so companion literally means “with bread” or sharing bread together,

hence the name Breadfellows' Chats.

At the point of encounter, there are neither utter ignoramuses nor perfect sages; there are only people who are attempting, together, to learn more than they now know.
