    In result of my first experience attending my first Meetup, it was indeed an honor to meet so many gifted individuals, and the real plus came from the words that they shared (truly words of art). I have always believed that our true reason for living is not only to be blessed, but to bless others. For all those that share their talent through words, continue to color the world with your words and truly you will see a beautiful bouquet to knowing what living is all about (if you don't know already).
