Goodness DJ Droood...Is this a good cop/bad cop post from you ? How are you?
You sound similar to me! You know what I've always valued the fact that you've always spoken your mind. I like that trait in a person
You're a challenger and an individual.I think this is what druidry is about, being confident in your sense of 'self', questioning and seeking your own way rather than being told what to do and simply complying.
If only I could tear myself away from my druidic studies with OBOD long enough to have a proper chat. The course I find is reasonably priced and I don't mind parting with the money knowing that I have full value for my money everywhere, its interesting. Yes,I'm proud to be a fully paid up member of OBOD. You know what, I remember one of the OBOD tutors once telling me how prisoners are doing the OBOD course, imagine that ! Tutoring someone who has been banged up. It's a bit of a challenge.
I notice that you mention 'beliefs' and after careful consideration of previous discussions on atheism/skepticism I have now taken on board some of the expressed opinions some of which have been very strong, even slanderous. I like to see all the sides before drawing conclusions... some things certainly need to be heard, I would say. But there you go, I think that freedom of speech is an important thing, for everyone!
The research is going well at the moment.Well its more a PR campaign... an interesting diversion if you will. However things are starting to move, there's a shift .
