    I love this group but this is a little too close to home for now; will share next month for anyone interested.

    August 15, 2013

    • Marilyn R.

      We missed you last night but respect your decision. We actually discussed how sometimes books like this hit too close to home. I'm sending you positive thoughts and vibes and hope to see you next month.

    If her book and TED talk aren't enough, listen to Jill Bolte Taylor on City Arts / KQED: http://www.kqed.org/radio/programs/index.jsp?pgmid=RD13

      I'm sorry, some things have come up this week and I won't be able to make Wednesday's meeting. I'll catch up next go round.

  • Jon

    I second Marisa's recommendation. And I'll bring a bottle of something to quiet our left brains.

    August 23, 2013

    • Morna

      Well put!...lol...I'll bring...something...

      August 24, 2013

  • Marisa

    I'll be there. Not sure what I'll bring yet...

    I'd like to recommend Jill Bolte Taylor's Ted talk:
    http://www.ted.com/talks/jill_bolte_taylor_s_powerful_stroke_of_insight.html

    It's just 18 minutes long, and I found it to be a fascinating and surprising description of how she felt during the stroke. If you're having trouble getting into the book, this is better than Cliff Notes!
