Last night we had our overnight bookclub at Chautuaqua. Lots of wine, good food, great conversations and belly aching laughing. Our bookclub is more about talking and drinking wine than reading the book but over the years we have read some really great books too. We have been together for over ten years. We are all pretty different from one another but our core beliefs and values are all very similar- liberal and socially minded. That is probably why we've stayed together for so many years.
