SUMMARY: A group of strangers meet over the course of a month, to talk about the lives they can remember having,but not really living.
EXCERPT: Porrim decided Damara should be in charge of snacks for their first meeting. When she told her, the young Japanese woman said nothing but turned and skulked off to the kitchen to look through the recipe books for ideas. While she was busy with that Porrim set about cleaning up the basement for tomorrow. The cement floor was easy to sweep up and she had no problems cleaning the fold out chairs they would be using. They had rented out the basement of an Episcopalian church downtown for their meeting space after deciding they should go ahead with the meetings after weeks of planning.
It started when Porrim had been speaking to one of her coworkers about the theory of past life regression, and how that was something that many people had experienced but there wasn’t really a local support group in their area. At work, Damara was the only person she had managed to recruit to help her set things up to start a support group. They had spent the past two weeks passing out flyers around the city to promote the first meeting of Past Life Regression Anonymous, or P.L.R.A. as Porrim decided to call it. They weren’t expecting a big turnout, but still Porrim hoped someone would show up. After all you put effort into something you kind of hope to get something back in return.
