This past Friday we had 22 attendees and about half were first time attendees. While the topic was a bit different for BQ, people agreed that we stayed on topic and we kept the discussion mostly philosophical and not political. Kudos to all those who attended! This was a most difficult topic.
Please note that we are not meeting in December. There are so many activities in December that a BQ meeting seems to be just one meeting too many. Stay philosophical. Keep your balance during the holiday season. Concentrate on your relationships with others and don't sweat the conventions of the season. The richness of of the season is in the connections you make, not the gifts you give. Love is a shared richness for both the giver and the receiver. Reach out to the ones you love, even if they are not aware of your feelings, and share of yourself.
