: : : Well, Emma, I read your post yesterday and I must admit to having been confused. So, I let it lay till this morning when I decided to read it again & attempt an understanding. No go.
: : : To read your words, something was said, very few were spared, and there is a lot of gossiping going on in the background of which you are aware. Or, am I reading too much into this?
: : : I AM aware of something strange going on ... as I barely alluded to in my Sunday post. If your words are true, then I think it about time the matter was discussed ... openly.
: : : : You all are but hiding, I know this is true
: : : : For many have written to tell me they're blue.
: : : : The blow that was dealt was not lethal, in fact
: : : : was inconsequential in the power it lacked.
: : : : So come back and dance on the words through the wire
: : : : and behind you do put those words that were dire
: : : : with meaning and portent and power unseen.
: : : : Myself, I don't think they were meant to be mean.
: : : : And be not offended by posts big or small
: : : : as power and life here reside with us all.
: : : I don't think I am misinterpreting this at all. The words are right there. I must've missed something, and if something IS going on in the shadows, it's making a mountain out of a mole hill ... as far as I can tell.
: : : Anyone want to explain this?
: : Dear Rich,
: : I, for one, am not aware of anything clandestine going on. I just sense that we're all in one of our fallow periods - waiting for some new and interesting material to catch our interest, or for some new inspiration to mischief to occur to us before romping off through the lilies of Mohicanland again. This is a time of year when folks get focused on The Gathering plans, rather than game-playing, too. Unless somebody brings it to my attention, I don't see anything wrong on the Board and certainly haven't heard anything "behind" it like pesky E-mail or anything. Don't worry - we'll all crop up when the conjunction of the planets or some such thing sets us spinning again.
: : If Emma has a "concern", maybe she should share it with us, but my feeling was just that she missed our personna romps, which truly have been few and far between lately.
: : Gayle
: Dear Rich,
: Nor am I privvy to any 'goings-on', secrets or behind the scenes manoeuverings. I know that, like Marcia, I have been busy, getting the new computer up, running and files loaded so haven't had the time I'd LIKE to keep up with what's going on. And I have to say, like you, I thought I must have 'missed' something!!
: However, I think Gayle has probably got the rights of it and folks are now busy making plans for the Gathering, ie. who gets to look after the dog, checking in times for 'that flight', and whether the red top with the white shorts, or the green t-shirt with the brown jeans!! These are IMPORTANT decisions - and not to be made on a whim!! Who has time to 'post' when we must get our 'wardrobe' together and find homes for the kids for the duration!!! :0)
: Things will come right - and Miss Marcia and Miss Gaylee will be back, sitting on their stoops, wondering what adventcha's the new Spring will bring!! You wait and see!
: Take care, all,
I couldn't agree more, Kate. I have been popping in from time to time to keep up to date with what has been going on but just haven't had anything interesting to report! Like Miss Katie says, we are all far to busy with Gathering plans - I must have counted my dollars and been over my travel itinerary a million times by now (well, you just can't be too careful now, can you?!)
I am glad to know that I am not the only one totally in the dark as to who said what to whom, and who took offense to what....haven't got a clue myself. To most of these posts, I have sat back and gone "huh?". Personally, I have never come across anything that I found remotely offensive. Strange, yes. Bizarre, yes. Downright bananas, absolutely! Still, I prefer to be clueless and unoffended!
So, lets get back to business, forget the hoo-ha, and talk GATHERING - yeah!
My regards to all, as always
