Sorry for the delay, I seem to have fallen behind. I do admire my mother's fortitude, but I do wish that she were not quite so stubborn. 2 years ago, Hubby and I rushed to her house because she was not answering her phone. Turned out that she had accidentally turned off the ringer! In fact, she used to regularly "test the system" to see how long it would take for me to spring into action. I finally had to tell her that the very next time that there was no answer for a 1-hour period, that I would have to phone the sherriff. Needless to say, she was shocked. But, as I explained to her, the sherriff could reach her home faster that I can and, if she's sufferer an accident, he can better summon aid. That put an end to the "testing the system." Now, if I can just pursuade her to listen to her doctor and accept treatment for depression, then I'm certain that we would both be much happier!
Yeah, it's hard to really communicate on here, I check in once in a while to erview lols (and occasionally make 'em) :) Sorry to hear about the fires last year, they've been really terrible the past few, haven't they?
Thigns are fine here, I moved (on my own), I got a REAL man now (though he hasn't moved with me yet, he just wanted me out of town in a safe place unknown to the psycho ex.) I like this new town, very Trekkie (it's called Vulcan.) :)
My e-mail, btw, is email@example.com, I can be contacted probably more easily through there or as Darwin's Outcasts on Facebook (I had a chat with Granny Ogg there the other day).
I really would like to keep in touch with Cheezfolk, but cripes, I just wish they'd have a proper chat area.
Ohai, lol yoo ar akshully AWAYKS AFTUR all DAT??? Yor skedule wud hav me sleeping for a week strayt ta recovur :o) I dont hab nuffs energy for dat kind uv excitement... yoo must hav amazing endurance! Sounded liek FUN !?
I love my town. We don't have an open circle that I know of....but I have always been a solitary hedgewitch as far as covens go. But a local bookstore hosts a mothly witches tea and a Catholic Church and Jewish Temple share the same buildings and Sanctuary where they host at two three pagan groups, Sufi dancing, several other Islamic activities.....and a non denominations Passover Seder.
yes, commonality is important towards making a community. I think religions were formed as a way of trying to understand the deeped mysteries....but people soon discovered..a) that for those in charge it could be a great way of controling people's thoughts and actions. A sad, but primary motivator for those who love to be in power or control positions. But religion also provides community....the thing I miss about not being a member of an organized group is the circle of community.
