A small number of members appeared in our library this past Wednesday.
I must tell you that we are never disappointed whether our numbers are
large or small. We had the most intimate and varied discussions throughout
our two hour meeting, and I believe that each of the five of us felt stimulated
and enlightened by this gathering.
The first piece caused each of us to review the issue of parenting skills.
This was a heartfelt topic. The next two pieces touched on the topic of
our assignment, “forgotten”. The first of these two revealed a true account
of how fame is so very fleeting, and even a previous mayor of New York
City can be forgotten once his term has expired. The second of these pieces
related to the assignment because it had been written several years before
and had recently been discovered. Once reworked and completed, this
child’s poem fit the assignment because it had been “forgotten”.
Finally, we enjoyed catching up with our novel writer. We needed a bit
of review of the previous several chapters which we had heard before.
Then we heard much new material. But, how inspiring to travel along
with a novel author as he creates characters, a compelling storyline, and
is able to bring to life with such clarity the action in this evolving story.
Next assignment if you so wish: Lessons Learned
Next meeting: Wednesday November 9 at 1:30 in our library
Do come and join us!!
