Dinner and Discussion at Empire Szechuan Village

 

Last time, everyone seemed to enjoy Empire Szechuan Village, so let's go there again. We had a great discussion on "jealousy," with many insights and personal reflections. When we voted on Human Emotions topics for discussion, "trust" came in a close second to "jealousy," and many people requested that we discuss "trust" at our next meeting. Specifically, let's talk about: What makes you trust someone, why is trust so important to successful relationships, and why are some people more trusting than others?

 

Note: A $3 contribution to cover Meetup fees would be appreciated!

    Hi all. Great group! In response to questions from some friends and neighbors, two possibly valuable resources worth knowing about are: SeniorPlanet.com and NextDoor.com Senior Planet offers computer use and an assembly space for talks and movies at 127 W. 25th St. The weekly updates keep subscribers informed on interesting events around the city. NextDoor.com is seeking to build social communication networks of neighbors living within blocks of each other.

    The discussion was lively. The first 30 minutes talk centered around how we were going to arrange and re-arrange the tables and chairs. This part of the discussion provided the evening's hilarity. Once we settled in, and drinks and food were served, the talk turned serious, the subject matter provocative: Trust. It seemed everyone was encouraged to join in (happily, one at a time) and everyone was heard. A comraderie seems to be developing among us, no doubt based on trust.

      Good summary of the evening, Ronnie. I agree with all you say. There were a few people I would have liked to hear more from or talk to, so I look forward to our next get-together.

    I've been a member of this group for a while but since I do Landmark Education on Mondays have not been able to attend on a regular basis. I hope a spot opens up for me tomorrow.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
