    I enjoyed our discussion once we got ourselves better situated so we could hear what everyone was saying. Is there any way to reserve a couple of tables at Teaism, or is there an alternative location that is quieter and more accommodating where we could meet? I hate to miss a word! I thought our discussion was lively, intelligent and respectful and I look forward to future meetings!

    One more thought: could you send along those names of books you all recommended as we talked. You've put me into a reading frenzy!

    I haven't been back to this group this year as I've been finishing two story collections. Alice Munro's work is always instructive.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
