09:41 am - I'm totally still here.
So in a last-minute change of plans, I'm leaving town tomorrow rather than today.

In a feckin' weird turn of events, I have discovered a sheet with some notes on it. Putting it here so I can find it later (I tend to forget things like this when I leave town):

"Not allowed to dial this number"

'Who are the clergy's clergy'


Good question.

It falls in the same line as 'who are the mentor's mentors'. *sigh*

If you come up with an answer....please share. :)

Been wondering it a lot. The question, of course, is usually, "Where does a clergy person turn when he/she needs help with something?" I imagine figuring that one out is always hard.

It's very hard.

Even if you belong to a tradition (like I did before), it's hard to find someone when we need help.

I went through a spiritual crisis, and went to those in my tradition. No one could or would help. Which is why I left the tradition.

Now, I rely on those in my study group....just as they rely on me.

*nods* I'm fortunate that, with ADF, I know who and where to go if I need something. I don't honestly remember if I was wondering for myself or for someone else, but I think that if I was wondering for me, it was just a momentary question.

Besides, I'm not clergy yet :)

But yes, if you can't find someone in your tradition to go to, then something is wrong.

You may not be 'clergy' yet...officially.

But, a lot of the stuff you do...I would consider it 'clergy' in spirit. :)

Fellow clergy, of course. Especially when you have one almost in your backyard. But you can always pick up the phone, too.

Hell, we're making a lot of this up as we go along -- who else can we possibly turn to but ourselves?

Exactly. I wonder, though, how often clergy think to call up other clergy. I read an article yesterday about clergy, and how often they forget to pray. I think it's something similar.

"Who are the Clergy's Clergy?"

Well, let's see, serious answer: that's why most organized religions have formed a hierarchy over the years of bishops and cardinals and the such. Even religions which claim that all clergy are the same level have obvious levels, although they may not like to admit it. :)

Less-serious answer: keep a drunk Taoist handyman around to vent to. :)

Sorry to hear you're at work, but if you're still in town then it makes sense to save the time off.

It makes loads of sense to keep that 8 hours.

Nice to see you now have a user icon.

And yeah, I know that, if nothing else, there's always the hamburger option :)

I can't stay up that late, but damn I want to go. I wish I could. I have to head out at 6 AM or so, and the drive is going to be about 14 hours long, plus I'm planning to stop for lunch around 3 in Philly with tlachtga. So tonight is all about doing laundry and getting packed, and then an early bedtime.

As for the pirates and ships. . . YES.

We must sell tickets.

You're going to Boston by way of Philly? *blink* Oh, that's right. For a moment, I forgot who I was talking to.

*forehead slap*

Beware I-90 traffic.

Hey, I just want to see tlachtga :) Besides, the time and mileage is pretty much the same whether I go through Buffalo, down the Southern Tier Expressway, across PA through the north, or across through the south. There's just no good or bad way to get there. Just ways.

Oh sure. Drive right by here without sayong hello. Hrumpf. :-P

Just kidding. If you left Columbus at 6 am, you'd get here around 10 am, at which point I'd still be asleep (read: coma). Besides which, from where you are to Philly, I-80 would make more sense. If by some weird chance you do take I-90, they're doing construction on it right around Erie. As usual.

*smiles* Yes, I am planning on headed straight down 70, so I won't be anywhere near Erie this time. Was sad I didn't see you at Wellspring, though I wasn't there all that long, anyway.

But, Summerlands!

Hey, email me your phone number, and if I pass through Erie on my way back (undecided at this point), I'll call you.

That's all I got. *goes around muttering about people who leave cryptic post-its everywhere*

I'd post some of my more cryptic Post-It's, but a number of them have some pretty sensitive info on them, at least the office ones.

Then there are the ones like this:

Shower Caddy Sharing

- move to your room,
don't leave in shower

Altar in a box

Totally not work-related. That one, I think, has something to do with my "dorm room paganism" article for OL.

I don't know when. I may have written it before or after the date indicated. I'm really not sure.
