October Review

Filed under: Open Reading Minutes — show1miyamura @ 10:24 am

October 2013

Our debut at our new location, the Kameshima Community Center, got to a wonderful start.

We had a new member, Luci, and two; Joan and Roy, who have not been with the NW for many years,
join us. The readings were powerful portraits reflecting on deeply feltexperiences from our pasts.

The staff at our new venue have been kind to us and the room offered is a good size, quiet,
well lit and climate controlled. It is a relief to have found such a good home for our future Open

what you saw… remembering – because you can’t take it in all at once.

  1. Hello all,
    Luci, my friend and colleague, has invited me to come along to this month’s NW, I just wanted to make sure that this was okay and to say that I’m really excited by the idea of sharing ideas in this way.
