What Steph T. is saying about this Meetup Group

There were several new members from diverse backgrounds each with interesting slow hunches on which they work. Our connections to different ideas increased as each person gave a short description of their latest innovation activities. Therese led the group in a wonderful observational activity. It is simple to set up and provides insight into the one sense we use most of the time - our sight. The insight derives from NOT using it. We used only touch to "observe" an object in a small paper bag and sketch what we think it is with our other hand. Its more revealing than you might think. I was able to sketch the basic object. However, upon looking at the object I later found several surface features I had not "noticed" with the fleshy part of my hand. My feedback moment informed me I should have used my nails too. I don't think of a hard nail as having the flexibility to provide information about (what I preconceived was) a flat surface. This was an informative lunch.
