Who says that Eastsiders can't explore deeper too! Join me at my Thinkpad for a stimulating social gathering of ideas! We will gather at 7 and socialize a bit before starting the structured discussion at 7:30. We will most likely wrap up a couple hours later, allowing some time for a last glass of wine, some snacks, and one-on-one engagements. It is okay to leave early if you have to, but please try to get there no later than 7:30.
Since I have a smaller place, I am limiting this to 8 guests, plus myself, since I prefer smaller groups so that everyone can be heard if desired. I may begin the discussion by showing a short video or doing a reading. It may or may not align with the SA discussion of the month, but I will tell you that my leaning is to explore existential questions from the non-believer POV--Life, Death, Meaning, Freedom, Solitude, Love--you know, the BIG ideas! This will be fueled by my background in psychology, my experience as a gay man, and my interest in the complexities of human relationship! Ha!
Because I am hosting a small group, if you RSVP please honor your commitment, or let me know ASAP if your plans change or something comes up so that I can offer the spot to another person. Don't be shy--RSVP early!
I will provide some snacks, savory and sweet, with wine and water. Initially I will have a "donation cup" out to offset the cost, but if this goes well there is the opportunity to make it more potluck-ish. I also welcome suggestions for the discussion, and am open to having "guest hosts" from time to time!
I am 1/2 block south of Santa Monica Blvd. and one block west of Wilcox. Unfortunately, my street is permit after 6, so I suggest parking on Santa Monica or Romaine--be sure to check the signs and allow yourself time to find parking!
