I'm increasingly impressed with your commitment to your spiritual practices-- both to your personal observances and to ADF. The amount of time I see you give to helping people with questions, engaging in thoughtful discussions, and working to improve ADF's training resources speaks volumes of your dedication and motivation. And I very much appreciate your sense of humor, particularly as you apply it to spiritual settings; I think it's important not to separate the sublime/divine from the fun/funny.
I'm curious, though, about the person behind the online/public face. We all have parts of ourselves that we try to hide, and you present such a successful, committed exterior that I occasionally wonder what's there that you don't want to show. I also wonder about your current intensity towards your paths, and whether/when you'll burn out from that. Beyond that, I'm curious as to what drives you so strongly towards leadership.
I'm not sure that I have much of a sense of who you are outside of the Buffett-loving Discordian Druid. Then again, it's not as if we're very close, so I'm pretty much just seeing the surface.
And sorry to say, but I can't bloody stand Buffett. ;)

I dunno. I've always been shocked when people call me a good leader. I'm never sure I am. In fact, I usually think I'm really lacking in that department.
But I also know that I do the stuff I say I'm gonna do, and I've realized that, sometimes, you can't depend on others to do what they need to do. The old adage: "if you want it done, do it yourself," rings true occasionally. I could list "for instances," but I'm not going to. It'd be rude, and generally insulting.

I addressed burnout above, I think.

This is what I love to do. I live for it, one might say.

I like to think that that's really about all I am. Or, would be, if you tossed in a few unsavory words like: rogue, scoundrel, and flirt.
