I have realized my most enjoyable evening is good conversation about meaningful things - expanding, learning, sharing, gathering. Currently I am sitting in the Patisserie and the table to the right of me is filled with a group of people I aspire to copy. The kind man wears a hat and jokes with me about our last meeting. They are in their late 40's, charmingly dress, sipping their coffee, kind brimming hearts and engaged in the art of conversation. They converse about books, articles, plays, acting, politics, education and community. They are intelligent, articulate, kind, artistic and inspiring. No cell phones, texting, computers - just sharing, discussing and laughing.
