Last night we had an impromptu meeting about coven stuff instead of putting together bookshelves and unpacking boxes. Frankly, it was a welcome change. We are having a more formal meeting later — one far from marauding and screeching chillun’s — but it was good to get a jump on it and start talking about things like…
What happens when you are using consensus to work through a decision and someone simply goes apeshit-crazy? Goddess knows Prairie Fire dealt with that earlier this year. I was sort of stumped by it last night, but then this morning I realized… you just work through it. And that person either works with you, or they leave. At least that’s my experience thus far. Seems consensus is hard for some folks who would rather hand down edicts, but that’s another story all together.

I am so blessed to have someone here on a par with the folks in Illinois.

I don’t know if it’s the circumstance of moving and starting fresh, or that Nina is getting older, but I find myself stretching back into the skin of priestess and organizer. It’s a good fit. Yesterday I finally got around to drafting up a checklist for organizing events. I also wrote an intellectual property clause for PFC’s by-laws and did some here-and-there work for both groups.
