Wow. I had an amazing time. :)

Some may find it shocking, others may find it sickening, but throughout the past few months, I have never had to worry about ADF, where it's heading, or what's going on. This might sound kinda strange, as I've been silently sitting at the center of it on occasion, and sometimes I make comments, but really, I don't see any issues with ADF.

It is, after all, my religion. It's not a website I visit or an email list I read.

And events like Summerland, Wellspring, Desert Magic, and Trillium all show me that ADF is workable. They show me that people are excited about ADF. They show me that people are primarily spiritual in their outlook on ADF. They show me that people are in ADF to honour the Gods, not to get involved in petty politics.

And then there's my Grove, a source of inspiration and a feeling of home. Special thanks to all of you who helped me get through last weekend with some sanity.

There was no politics. There was no discussion of who-said-what. We were just all there, being ourselves, worshipping the Kindred to the tune of some highly out-of-tune Jimmy Buffett lyrics.

I haven't read any entries made on my last post yet, but from the looks of things it turned into a pretty little flame war. Originally, I hadn't intended to comment on any of the responses, but I got sucked in. I think this time, I will re-attempt to not respond, but I'll read them all.

It's really good to see an upbeat post about ADF--there are too few of them these days.

Glad you had fun!

i have a similar upbeat post re: the organization and the festival, but i'm deep in the throes of the post-festival blues right now...

i so wish those who took their toys and went home would be content with that decision and not continue to ring the doorbell and run.

That sounds uber cool!

So incredibly true.

If we do it again next year. There seems to be some indecision in the ranks.

It's okay. Jimmy will prevail.

Ok, I was waffling, but the idea of a pool and rubber duckies *definitely* turned the tide. (I paid a visit to Yankee Trader today, too and got ALL KINDS of ideas...)

Yes, I agree with you. I love my grove and all of the things we do together. It is the greatest, and I feel very dedicated to running it. I also have loved every festival and get-together I have had, including going to SSG ceremonies. All of my ADF experiences with real people, face-to-face, have been superb.

Emails and LJ get weird sometimes, but I would imagine a gopod portion of that has to do with lack of tone, lack of expression, lack of body language, so we don't really know how people intend what they say. All we know is how we perceive their message, after it has passed through our filters, as well as theirs.

If we just keep in mind what we are all here for, I think everything will be fine.....
