Fun First

The Art of Conversation needs conservation

Everyone Gets 'Paid' - money, advice or training

No 'Job Interviews' - people are spoken 'with' not 'at'

It's not what you wear - it's where you're at

Funny is Seinfeld and the Cookie Monster not Friends

Anything Online - it's all spin until we talk

Your age, gender and anything else, is irrelevant

Flake is a chocolate. Not something you do.

Agenda for Saturday afternoons;

Session 1. Private Venue

  • 5 minute Art Speech / entertainment

  • Everyone speaks (equal time) about their non-creative work. ​​

  • Everyone speaks (equal time) about their creative work. ​​

  • Everyone speaks (equal time) about interests / genres of Film, Music, Art and Literature

  • Form sub-groups to meet at other times

Session 2. Drinks at the Bar. Hopefully with Retro Music and a free drink, I'll see what I can hustle.

Cost; free, for now

My Influences - Buddha, Matthew, Blake, Shelly, Coleridge, Wordsworth. Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, The Doors, The Saints, Nina Simone / Hagen / Cherry
