I think this comment is actually a pretty important piece of “how to do Solstice” that should be entering into the “How to do Solstice” canon. It also makes me feel a bit better about including both
a) a more extensive Welcome Speech, and
b) the Meditations on Past/Present/Future in the 2020 Solstice despite those not being that popular, since I think they provide important framing for the whole thing that makes it more sticky.
(I don’t know that they actually solve the problem either, but, I think things in this space are important for Solstice)
