Holy Cow! What another awesome meeting with 18 of us in attendance. We had a couple of new faces, our recent "regular" group, and we were so excited and blessed to have Michael and Ian join us again after a long while. They always contribute such deeply insightful thoughts, and share their personal stories in an inspiring, authentic-to-the-core, way (as do all of our members). Tonight we listened to a part of a StutterTalk podcast about being present in the moment of stuttering, authenticity, and stuttering openly, and what that all means to each of us. Next month, we will be continuing the conversation regarding authenticity, watching a couple of short speeches by inspiring young woman who stutter, and we will have a reading addressing this topic that will be sure to spark a meaningful discussion.
