We love books and movies!!! And we think they have lots to say about the world we inhabit— and HOW we choose to inhabit this good planet. So we read and talk and eat and drink— and watch and listen and eat and drink—and talk and share our perspectives. Even if we don’t agree, we respect each other’s hearts, minds and opinions and we have fun while we learn ever more lessons about how to “play nicely in the great big sandbox” called Earth. We meet 10 times a year, from January to October and share a book one month and a film the next. Some of our reading and viewing:
