The Dawn of Day, Part II

Let's have our second meeting on The Dawn of Day. As discussed last meetup, Ishmael and I (and anyone interested) will put together a list of discussion topics that we will try to have available a week before the meeting. This will give you time to either read the text, review the text or even look to outside sources so you can lend to the discussion. Fret not if you don't do either; it's philosophy and I'm sure the conversation will generate some sort of reaction out of you or else you wouldn't likely be attending!

 

This date is tentative given the holidays, but I for one would love to go into the crazy days of December with a bunch of the groups intellectual musings dancing on my neurons.

    Spencer, Sorry to leave you hanging. We didn't schedule anything over the holidays as most folks aren't available. That said, I'm ready to go now. How about the final meeting on Dawn of Day at the end of this month and a kick start to the next book! All in favor?

    Chris, you didn't happen to join Meetup itself when you were living in the Midwest did you? Looks like it has a default time of MST there, which caused the confusion. Sorry again you got stuck drinking by yourself, we were out on the patio as it was so crowded. I put my IPAD Up with the meetup page hoping that might catch someone's attention, haha.

      I think it's under ACCOUNT/GENERAL, and you look to see what your location is.

    Chris, really baffled where you got 5:30 from; we've always met at 7-7:30 to give everyone time to get home from work. Sorry for the confusion as we would have loved your input. Please see the past meetups and you'll see the standard start time. We hope to meet again soon and will be sticking with Dawn for one more meeting.

    Had a great time also guys; not sure why there wasn't more note taking when I was pontificating, but I guess it's because you guys were enraptured by my prose. Looking forward to the next one!

    I came by at 5:30 as the email indicated and stayed until 8:30 and didn't see a group - now I'm drunk with no satisfaction of good converstation - what the hell!?

    Donald, I have put together a number of topics/questions extracted from the text.

    Work has been crazy past two days. Haven't had time to draw up questions, so will focus on questions for the next text. If the newbies who RSVP'd show up and Melvin, we can talk about the basic tenets of Dawn of Day and I trust we'll get a good conversation going!

  • Donald F.

    I'll write some up!

    I am really hoping I can attend this discussion- I am showcasing my art work and apparel line the night before so hopefully I can muster up the energy to join you guys!!!!

  • Damián Guzmán G.

    I really haven't had time to put together those questions. I've been really busy these weeks... Donald, have you worked on any questions?

    I am leaving for CA for a week on that day. Sorry.
