    Unfortunately, we are not going to make it today because of subway schedules. We live in Brooklyn and it would take us an hour each way by subway to get to the Center for Ethical Culture or $75 total by cab, and with a baby, who still naps 2x a day, we'll have to wait for her to be a little more flexible, or when there is an assembly in Brooklyn. We were really looking forward to a gathering of peers for thoughtful insights and socializing.
