061019 – Thursday – a favorite word

Tertulia – I really like that word and what it refers to.   Here’s a link  to a brief Wikipedia article which explains the idea .

It reminds me of reading about Charles Darwin and how various scientists and thinkers would come to his place and each afternoon, they’d all walk around the grounds and discuss various issues.

I’d like nothing better than to find my life arranged so that each day for an hour or two, I could spend time with interesting people discussing cutting edge ideas.   So far, the closest I’ve come are E-mail threads and chats over coffee at Starbucks in the morning.
