Socrates Cafe

There ought to be a law against rainy cold Victoria Days. Instead of working out in my garden I'm inside worrying that all the bedding plants I put in pots yesterday are getting very cold. (Observation: in Manitoba they are called bedding plants. Here they are called bedding out plants. Where else but out would you bed them?)

So in preparation for Unchurch I'm reading Christopher Phillips' Socrates Cafe. Interesting book - interesting concept. Create opportunities for people to come together to talk about philosophical ideas and they will come and engage the examined life.

From the book:

"Contrary to popular belief, the more questions you have, the firmer the footing you are on. The more you know yourself. The more you can map out and set a meaningful path for your future."
