where creative minds can interact

This is a no brainer for me. I would spend my Thanksgiving with some of the greatest minds ever. Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Edison. They changed the world in immeasurable ways in their lifetimes. I would love to talk to them, find out what made them tick, and how their minds worked. There would be no way to duplicate that greatness but I'm sure that some of it would have rubbed off on me. The other person I would have at the table is Ralph Waldo Emerson. He was such an insightful man and I would love to pick his brain too.

There are so many more people but I would have to write volumes to list them all and why I want to meet them. It would take a large convention center to hold them all and miles of tables to seat them all. I strive to learn as much as I can from as many people as possible. The ones I listed are just the tip of a very big iceberg of knowledge and inspiration.

yea..Ben and Tom are really cutting-edge thinkers...getting up time after time to pursue that..nagging, obsessive, constant... urging to do what others said was..impossible
or worse...not likely .... i love this line ..."dont 'face' a reality unless it's a reality you want"...
somehow these guys knew this through tenacity ..NOW..i wouldnt mind eavesdropping on their men's night out.. NOW did anyone else hear of the story of human bones being discovered in Franklin's basement?

I don't know much about Edison's personality either but he still had a great mind and I'm sure it would be time well spent. Even if he wasn't Mr. Personality he wasn't Hitler.

I don't know who would get the most time, but I'm betting it would be Emerson. I am much more into the philosophical/critical thinking mind.

i know what you mean, barry. my list would be long as would be the tables. i don't know much about thomas edison's personality, but i have read alot about ben franklin. he's a hero of mine. what a great guy to share thanksgiving with! he was such an incredible personality as well as a genius. i just love his spirit. i feel like i would have TONS to learn from ben. and ralph waldo emerson could probably talk all night of great things. who would have the most floor time if you put these guys at the same table!!?!?!?!?!?!
