    I look forward to more discussion and interactions with all of you! I'll be away in August but back with bells on in September! If anyone was curious about Harry Frankfurt's "Order of Desires," here's a concise summary of the idea: http://www.uark.edu/campus-resources/rlee/intrsp07/oh/frank-2order.html

    Best wishes ~ Trish

    It was great meeting you all! The book that inspired my question was "Daring Greatly" by Brene Brown. Here's a link to her TED talk - http://youtu.be/iCvmsMzlF7o

    Here's another first-timer question: I know it is a Socratic "circle" but it sounds physically uncomfortable...must we sit in chairs facing each other without a table to rest our arms on or lean into for comfort? Just wondering.

    • Bill

      I think we had a table last time.

      June 29, 2014

    • Gina

      Hi Patricia, we usually sit around à table or 2 or 3 (depending on the turnout). We sit in the back of Panera Bread (bishops corner location) and generally make ourselves confortable.

  • Deborah

    I hope to make it. Will be first time for me. We each are to bring a topic, is that right?

    June 20, 2014

    • John L

      Hi Deborah, you aren't required to bring a topic - but if you have something on your mind it is encouraged. We vote on the topics (that everyone puts in) to decide what to discuss that evening. Lately I've been preferring to vote on topics over contributing them - but I'm sure one of these days I'll have something that I need to talk about.
