Hi John,
I apologize for my late response but I was waiting for a scheduled conference call with my colleagues before I could reply. I was excited at the possibility of collaborating with you and your colleagues at the Active Aging Conference in LA in December. As you know time and resources are precious. After having discussed the opportunities at the conference for our project, Janet, Moira and I decided to concentrate our on-going planning efforts here in Europe. However I am very interested in the recommendations and results of the conference! How about arranging a call in January 2011 to exchange thoughts? It would be great to touch base personally. All the best for a very successful conference. I look forward to hearing all about it early next year. Warm regards from Munich, Pat

Hey John! I don't see you on the list for this Thursday's WC call so I guess you've got a conflict. Maybe next time. I have a couple of threads up on this site about the questions--I'd be grateful if you could offer your thoughts.

Hi, John. I'm embarrassed that this invitation has been sitting out here since April! Apologies for my tardiness.

I guess I mean more what do you physically do with the results. I have transcribed them and sorted by question and then written summaries of the major themes. I photograph the artwork and incorporate it into the summary. That seems like the logical way to use the results, but have you seen any other way?

Plan on it.

Tell me what you do to follow-up on Cafe sessions generally. What do you do with the comments received? Where does it go from there?

Hi John,
Thanks for the great conversation at the end of the multi-generational Cafe. It was great to connect.

Dear John: I am keeping up with your page. It occurs to me that
as a great grandmother in this country and a great aunt in Canada
I have my own intergenerational conversation (co-generational)
within my own family in two countries!; and am privileged to
be in dialogue with many across the world. Blessings, Anne, Elder, TWC.

Love to John. I will also try to get a teleconference before just so people from the area can touch base with each other. Would you be interested in participating?

Good morning John. Thank you for the friend request. I'm delighted to accept. I am also on an educational journey - a year into my graduate degree at Pepperdine. I applaud you for taking the step to do your PhD. I've heard amazing things about the Fielding program. I'm looking forward to conversations and connections with this community.
