You probably don't remember me as it's been so long...
I always enjoyed the meetups that I attended. However, the meeting
nights haven't worked for me since early fall last year due to me
having class those nights. Luckily, classes are over June 4th!
I assistant organize the Consciousness group, and I know how
frustrating the "RSVP then no show" can be. If you have several
assistant organizers, I'm happy to be one so we could switch off each
month in our responsibilities. Of course, I know I haven't been
around much, so there are probably much more appropriate choices of
people to help you out. :) Good luck with all this - your hard work
is appreciated - I haven't stayed away because of anything to do with
you, the group, or the studio.

"A human being is part of a whole, called by us the 'Universe,' a part
limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and
feelings, as something separated from the rest--a kind of optical
delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for
us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few
persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this
prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living
creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.
- Albert Einstein
