Reunion and Pagan Men

We did­n’t go to the Mind­Spring reunion. I had mixed feel­ings, and then real­ized that I was­n’t quite ready to leave dra­cofrost and shad­owkatt in the house unchaperoned.*

I real­ized that while there are peo­ple with whom I’d like to re-estab­lish con­tact who were at the reunion, and while the first part of my time at Mind­Spring was both won­der­ful and a great oppor­tu­ni­ty, the end of that time real­ly soured things for me. It ate bad­ly at my con­fi­dence. After recon­nec­tion with Green, among oth­ers, I learned that what hap­pened to me cer­tain­ly was­n’t unique or unusual—it was part of the move towards cor­po­ra­ti­za­tion and con­for­mi­ty. I had no desire to run into Stromberg or McQuary. It would­n’t have been fun. So I did­n’t go.

There’s an inter­est­ing bit about MindSpring/EarthLink in Cre­ative Loaf­ing. Weird head­line, but some inter­est­ing figures:
For not kiss­ing the Earth­Link employ­ees he’s screwed

This is a mar­velous article:
In Praise of Pagan Men

I’m hon­ored to be part­nered with my incred­i­ble pagan man, sam­bear, and to be asso­ci­at­ed with oth­ers. I love you.

BTW — the stained glass piece shown with the arti­cle is gor­geous! I’ve sent an email ask­ing about the artist.

And as an adden­dum to the size accep­tance post, Jon Robi­son is a holis­tic doc­tor who has some very inter­est­ing arti­cles and Pow­er­Point pre­sen­ta­tions avail­able on his site for downloading.

*Not a reflec­tion on either kid—I’m still get­ting used to the whole “My BABY has a BOYFRIEND!” thing. I think I’ll like­ly post more about that later.
