It is always fun to work with people you have learned to know and to trust. It is also good to meet new people and find that they too may become trusted friends. This Task Group on Racial Healing that I have been asked to serve on has a good friend and colleague as the chairperson, but I only knew one of the other four people in the group. After a day spent together, I am delighted that it looks like we will have a good group -- our talents and skills seem to complement each other nicely.
Tonight we went out to dinner with our group plus the Intercultural Reference Committee -- 13 of us in all. We went to a place called Bravo! Cocino Italiana a couple of miles from the hotel. Good food and good company!
