I missed the last ISEPP lecture. However I've remained active in ISEPP management at least insofar as I've helped with a likely transition to a Google Group with overlapping calendars, for managing the conference room.
I need to call Don back (we were just on the phone), to find out if we have the Wanderers stuff scheduled. I don't think I saw our schedule last I checked.
I've joined the May Day Coalition's fundraising subcommittee this year. IT workers of the world do not get as much respect as they deserve, for often meeting a 99% operational standard. I'm happy to join in solidarity with these unions and after the last meeting (where I was note taker) I snagged maydaypdx.org (with a little help from an LLC).
I did make a Thirsters talk recently, on Sierra Leone, and what a particular group is doing to catalyze healing. The State Department is privy to a lot of this same information. We learned about the impact of ebola, hopes and dreams for the region. I'd been under the impression Sri Lanka was the topic owing to a mistake in one of the circulars. I would have gone anyway as I was looking forward to having a few minutes with Barbara, driving her home.
I could go on and on about Sierra Leone. Lets just say I'm glad a lot of good people are doing their best. We've trained really hard around potential conflicts so our disaster relief skills as a species are severely wanting, anyone can tell you that.
For NPYM Quakers I created MMM-PSC and MMM-EEG and quickly gave the latter away, as it's unbecoming of a Friend to appear too greedy. Owning just the former is sufficient for my practice at this time. MMM-SMAD would be for some other Friend to establish. I fully appreciate that some Friends may not wish to choose a Google service.
