I want to circulate the idea that maybe we could do a meetup or
retreat (or two) before 2020, mainly to think through what we might do
in 2020 that builds on what we've done before.

For me, 2015 was hugely challenging, in different ways than previous
reunions had been--and it was the best, just because I was more
challenged and in ways I'd never been before. Apart from the retreats
idea (which may need to be reframed into something more useful or
practical), I just want to keep stretching, keep learning how to go
beyond my comfort zone, and I've learned, thanks to all of you and
especially to you, Doc, to keep doing that.

(Also, Camp Shakespeare folks? Cool!)
