I’ve had this post titled “Plan A and Plan B” sitting in my drafts folder for, oh, two weeks now. See, I’m not sure where I’m going to end up getting the professional library job I’m looking for currently – and the details of establishing a new group depend to some extent on whether I stay local to the Twin Cities (what I really want!) or not. So, let’s try a slightly different take.
While I’m figuring out the job thing, I need some plans.
The calendar keeps flipping….
All good intentions about updating aside, it’s hard to keep on top of with my current schedule. (Day job from 7:30am to 4pm weekdays, my part time temporary reference librarian job weekends 12-5 and Monday and Tuesday evenings), plus various religious group commitments.
This weekend was blissfully free for a change: some brief social stuff and errands, but all of Monday free due to Martin Luther King Jr. Day. I feel part-way human again. Plus, I’ve only got five more days at the temporary job to go, which helps with momentum.
Conversation, part 1
Last week, my group had the first part of a really productive conversation about what the core of the tradition is. We’re still in progress on this, but we’re in agreement on a lot of things. One of the things I’ve been thinking about is the difference between how we do things, and why we do them.
Before spending some posting time talking about what my plans are for hiving, I realised it makes sense for me to talk about *why* I want to hive. This is that post.
