  • A guiding poem for the weekend:

    "The subject tonight is love /
    and tomorrow as well /
    as a matter of fact /
    I can think of no better topic /
    for us to discuss /
    until we all /

    -Hafiz, 1350

    Strangers in a circle grow close as we embark on a journey to tell the story of self, the story of us, and the story of now.

    "It's an act of generosity to share your true self, not selfish."

    In one of these stories, she recalls how a kid in Cleveland once told her,

    "You don't have to move to live in a better neighbourhood."
