Dear Gloria, dear all,
The Bray mini-meet will be my second initiative as I set up a true minimeet in Vancouver May 2012 - just the 2 of us. But two is all it takes to make a mini-meet! Great fun and very interesting.
So, yes, I started the Bray initiative and thanks to Catherine we'll set a new "nutty-mini-meeting-record" - being four!!
It is a special feeling to meet others that have the same experience as you. Someone who knows truly and really the silly feeling of not being able to stand and put on make-up in front of the mirror the way you always have, or brush your teeth. Someone else who knows exactly how it is to try and meet and chat to a friend down town: "Very nice to see you dear, but can we go over here and sit down - NOW!"
My situation this time will be diffrerent though. I've been there, know it all - but now it's almost a year since OT became a shadow instead of a constant companion. I hope to share something positive..
Anyway - try the nutty way friends!
When you travel and have a some spare time, reach out to OT'ers in that country, state or region. It's a great possibility to learn, share and make new friends. No need for a huge meeting, a mini meeting over coffe, lunch or dinner is the thing!
warm regards to all,
(and there are seats open around the table in Bray, Ireland if someone wants to join us)
