The Land Before the Avocado – Reminiscing.
Michele Weckman led off a lively discussion to start the year.
After reading the book “The Land Before The Avocado” by Richard Glover, Michele was led to explore the topic “Fifty Years On, Is Life Better for Everyone?” and the article written by Jessica Irvine. In this article she discusses the New Year’s Eve ritual of making a resolution to make the coming year better than the last. But it’s also an interesting time to reflect on the question of whether life is, in fact, getting better.
We all read the article and enthusiastically talked about things that were better and worse. We could have covered many more issues re the pros and cons of this question but as always we left with much to reflect upon.
