Wellspring packing is... pretty much done, actually. Not counting things I need to use in the next 24 hours, like my pillow and my insulin. What will I do with the rest of my evening?

Some people in ADF seem to think that new ideas aren't being heard or taken seriously by older members, some people in ADF seem to think that what we've built up over the past 33 years could easily be destroy by those who don't understand it. Darn it, if only we had something in our cosmology to guide us, something about the Waters of Chaos feeding the Tree of Cosmos, and the Tree returning its fruit to the Waters...

Wait, we already have that?

Huh.

Yeah, okay, I've got nothin'.

(From Ceiswr Seirith's article which I can't link to directly because the ADF site is having issues, but see https://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:Oq9ov-E-gMkJ:https://www.adf.org/articles/cosmology/sacrifice-ie-adf.html+&cd=1&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us :)

The Waters of the Well come from the deep waters that, in Indo-European cosmology, support and surround the earth. But "there be dragons there." That is where the Outsiders dwell, beyond and beneath our Cosmos, our well-ordered world. There is Chaos, the power of entropy that would damage our order, that would destroy our Cosmos if allowed to enter in pure form.

Remember the relationship between the Tree and the Well, though. The Tree is Cosmos, the Well draws up the waters of Chaos. But the Tree is fed by the waters of the Well. How can that be? How can Chaos feed Cosmos?

Cosmos can grow stiff and brittle. Order can stifle. Established ways can grow old and die. There is life in the wildness that comes from the Well, and that is what the waters give the Tree -- a vivifying drink to be its sap, to keep its branches from becoming dry sticks. And in return the Tree, in true ghosti-relationship, gives its fruit to the Well.

Unlikely theory for what will happen in "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2": Our heroes have been poisoned and need their walking tree friend to generate fruit that contains the chemical that can cure them, so they send him the message telepathically.  He responds with "I am growing the fruit", but the message gets garbled and also travels backward through time to his childhood, and gets stuck there.

Word nerd problems: Whole any accusation of gaslighting in an organization I'm in is a serious concern to me, I still spend too much time trying to figure out whether the past tense should be "gaslighted" or "gaslit".

Welcome to the Era of Social Media, where TV shows are expected to find their voice before the first episode ends.
Preacher the comic book was badass. If you were a teenager when it came out—and, hey, not to narrow it down too much, but if you were a straight white male teenager growing up in a small town, like someone who shall remain nameless—it seemed like something not just special but explosive; something s

"Consider that after John McCain locked up the nomination in March 2008, his numbers bounced above Obama's briefly. But as Obama got close to the Democratic nomination, he gained ground back away from McCain."
It's hyperventilate-over-polls season. Here's some perspective to calm you down.
