Like many, I have a strong social conscience that compels me to stay as informed as possible, to participate when I can, and to try to find some equilibrium in daily living in order to save the world – one thought at a time.

Book Group!  My book group is a monthly gathering of friends. The evening is spent catching up with each other, discussing the world’s problems, drinking wine, having a nice meal . . . and eventually discussing the book we just read.

This is a gathering we all look forward to. Most of us have known each other for over 30 years, and the regularity of the event means we’ll always get together before letting too much time slip by. View Post
