If you've noticed a shift in my activity on the site, or are just getting a different vibe from me, you're not imagining it. Not unexpectedly to me, my health issues continue to slowly progress, and even though the changes are small, they add up.

My ability to read as much of what goes on on the site has been diminished, as has my ability to respond back. I'm still busy busy doing site related stuff happily all day long, but it's shifted to more of what I call 'mouse work' things I can do with point and click. So I play with graphics, and I do a lot of adding people on site related twitter accounts to let people know we're here and that type of thing.

A lot of the site administration has been managed by our great admin team, which I'm very appreciative of. That and a membership base, all of you, who are respecting our guidelines and co-creating here in such a compassionate and positive fashion, has made the management of this site such a pleasure. We've had so few problems to deal with and they've all resolved quickly. There will always be the occasional negative person out there, but compared to all the positive endeavors going on here it's such a minor issue.

I have all kinds of ideas of how this place could grow and be of use to it's membership, and I just hope I can find the energy and the support needed in times to come to pull it together. I need to get into our co-creation group and share some of my thoughts soon and see if we have members interested in working on new projects here. I'd like better avenues for instance for helping members promote their related businesses/services/goods - and help our members improve their quality of life via the work they're doing, but in a way that doesn't spam our members... like creating a Temple Marketplace/Mall... etc.

Basically I want to keep the Temple growing in ways that it helps people in very real ways, spiritual, emotional, psychological, and yes the material, as long as it doesn't detract from those other elements. For myself I'm not really interested in making money here, that's not my purpose in creating this space, but I am interested in supporting members that way, as long as it doesn't turn the Temple into a commercial space... hence a separate 'mall' area... anyways, I'm rambling.

There are also things like increasing our activism role, giving people more resources to make positive change, like promote a cause a week with ways people can contribute to the cause... ie, petitions, donations, and other resources for that cause made available.

I'd like to use our events section to promote more spiritual community podcasts, like pagan centered podcast, etc, and other community projects and events.

I'd like to perhaps house or sponsor a Temple Illuminatus Podcast someday... but know I can't be in it, so who would be and how would it go? or?

So many ideas and projects and so little time and energy! So if you have ideas and time and energy, and want to be more involved... do let me know. Find a way to make the Temple work for you and support what you want to do in life.

If we can get support a member or even groups of people together, who want to make something happen here... we can find a way to try to make that happen. 

Groups here can be peoples own little mini-sites.. all kinds of things are possible with the format we have people can add applications to their groups on their group pages, etc, that can do just about anything. There are literally infinite possibilities for co-creation.

I guess, what I want to say is my heart and my spirit are still very much here, alive and thriving and passionate about the Temple. I may not be able to read your blog, or respond to your forum post. I may have to leave you a picture or no response at all instead of a written reply to a comment you send me. I may not always be able to get back to you. I may make mistakes. I may forget things. I may forget who you are, or mix you up with someone else. I'm becoming someone with ever more limitations in my life... but please don't read into those things a lack of interest, of love, of care.

I'm whimsical, and sometimes I'll use my day's allotment of energy on writing things maybe others wouldn't consider so important... I know a lot of times people may look at think, well if she can do 'that' then she should be able to do 'this', or do 'that' again.. but it doesn't work like that. Sometimes I don't know what I'll be able to do.. or more likely what I'll all of a sudden find myself incapable of doing.

One thing is always clear in the confusion though. One thing is always well no matter how tired and ill I may feel, and that is that I love this place and everyone here who is co-creating it with me. So thank you.

There isn't a person or post here that isn't special to me in some way... I've lost track of many of the individual parts and details... not because they're not important, just because I'm no longer able.

I'm a very empathic person, and I'm a happy person, and as long as most people here are happy, I'm going to continue being happy, because making others happy is what makes me happy...

So thanks for the happiness... *smile*

Now I'm going to stop writing before I get weird (er) lol.

Live in Love

Very much appreciate and enjoy all of your heartfelt and insightful comments... I did too much typing yesterday, so instead of replying individually need to keep it to a group reply! LOL.
