    Voices from the Chat Logs:

    From 2/10/2011 07:00: How Are Decisions Made in PaB?:

    Bruce Mowbray: I think my "problem" is that I don't yet understand how "decisions" are made in PaB. . .
    Bruce Mowbray: Or, perhaps, they are made in a variety of ways -- some of which I'm not aware of.
    Storm Nordwind: With as much devolvement as possible I think :)
    Storm Nordwind: PaB is coming up to 3 years old
    Bruce Mowbray is a big fan of devolution ;-)
    Storm Nordwind: There was a time when there were very few people and Pema made many suggestions and we took them up
    Storm Nordwind: Now there is a working group and a Kira sub-committee and home-grown groups for different projects
    Storm Nordwind: And the retreats are part of that mix
    Bruce Mowbray: yeppers.
    Storm Nordwind: It's not Pema's project anymore. Instead, it's owned by us! :)
    Storm Nordwind: Though Pema still makes a massive contribution - in more ways than one
    Bruce Mowbray: Indeed . . .
    Bruce Mowbray: Being of the Quaker tradition, I seek consensus in virtually all decision making. . .
    Archmage Atlantis: Yes, we are aware of the monetary element
    Bruce Mowbray: but I also realize that this seems like anarchy to some folks. . .
    Storm Nordwind: There is strength in this little community
    Storm Nordwind: Well, some people get insecure unless there is hierarchy and a figurehead

    From 2/1-/2011 19:00: Eduring Love:

    Paradise Tennant: for love to endure ..what has to be present?
    stevenaia Michinaga: flexibility
    oO0Oo Resident: appreciation
    stevenaia Michinaga: as applied to everything
    Kit Ciaco: self awareness and self affection
    stevenaia Michinaga: yes, continued appreciation
    stevenaia Michinaga: so much can change over time
    Faery Serendipity: love changes over time
    stevenaia Michinaga: nods
    Paradise Tennant: I think I would add space
