We intend:

To provide a public space for listening to and understanding one another.  To offer a moment of presence and attention with the intent of potential benefit to others.  To listen uninterruptedly to the expression of others’ joys and concerns, and to offer encouragement, support, and hope for all possible future outcomes.

[If a summary of conversation points is desired as a memento, a typewriter is employed to produce one for whomever requests it.]
