This panel meeting is a bit of AA history as well as a good speak from three excellent speakers. We have Polly P, Peter and then Lorna speaking on the topic of "The Language of the Heart" at the AA International Convention held in San Diego California in 1995.

I have a very tiny a personnel connection to this one, I was at this meeting and many years later lived in the same town as Polly and would run into her at meetings, but never put it together until I listened to this and thought... that sounds like Polly P. I had no idea she was one of the speakers I listened to that night.

If you have never been to one of AA's International Conventions I would suggest it if you possibly can, its an amazing experience. The next one is in Vancouver Canada... Ill see you there! July 3 - 6 2025.
