Please Listen To Me

After going 2 years with absolutely no money owing to a car accident – I finally settled with my car insutance company.

The very first thing I did – and this was someone who could not buy a pair of underware for 2 years – was donate $500 to this site.

Why?  Because i believe in Budhy

I do not know what the hell has happened here.

Here is what I know.

I LOVE this community

Please tell me what is going on.

    but it seems that a bunch of meta broke out. i hate meta. pray for rain.

    🙂 We love Docudharma and we love working! Ignore Meta. Let’s work.  

  2. breathingstill, no worries, looks like just a family squabble, I don’t think anything that will bring docudharma down…

    Hey, on a happier note, glad you’ll have grocery money again…

    That’s what gets me stressed…I can go without anything, but I gotta keep food in that thar fridge for the little ones…

    You make it or you don’t…keep making it, day by day.

    TMWAP

  3. I am going to move this off the FP. We are trying to limit the meta to the right side.

    I hope that doesn’t offend you.

    I will be back to answer fully in a minute.

  4. community is shared by enough (I hope) that it will survive and thrive. Strangely during the height of this I lost connection to the net so I got the start and end missed the middle. I am going nowhere as it is riveting and what has flowed in and out may be scary emotionally but is always lurking. The under currents in our conversations and deliberations.

    I not only believe in Budhy, but all the other voices and dynamics happening here. It’s  all good as my son is want to say, this is not a fragile group we are strong , and one of our strengths is our differences. Viva la difference or some such. Do not lose heart Breathing still, the drama unfolds and so does the story, the soul seems intact.            

  5. … the wolf is no longer at your door!

    And your generosity to the site is appreciated by this docudharmaniac!

    I love this place, too.

    & this surely needs one!

    I’m glad the insurance came through…& how very generous of you!

    thank you for this essay…a place for time out…a place to say

    I really love this place!

  6. Here is  my version, everyone is free to add or dispute.

    Armando posted an essay that talked about race. He was called a racist and a race baiter. He fired back at the folks who called him that. A series of essays were posted dealing with it. Lots of people got upset for lots of reasons. People got mad at Armando….people got mad at the people who got mad at Armando. Everything blew up. we are trying to put it together again and resolve both the race issue and the meta issues that it spawned.

    Civility has once again become a topic and we are basically trying to solve the problem of how humans relate to each other….both on blogs and off.

    People have left and other people are considering leaving.

    I have no idea how it will all shake out….meta wise.

    I am not going to try to assign blame, especially on 3 hours sleep. All I want to do right now is have everything calm down for a bit so we can all get our bearings back.

    As much as I have tried to see absolutely everything and be as objective as possible I am sure I haven’t.

    The whole thing sucks,of course. But I don’t really know what to do with it all….yet anyway. If we are going to deal with sensitive and important issues like race we have to accept …to some extent at least that things will blow up.

    The basic choice seems to be between peace and not dealing with sensitive issues….or typical blogwar stuff when we do.  Everybody needs to do a better job of relating and communicating just like always….everywhere.

    If things go well, we will get better at that and be a better blog….if things go badly, lots of of folks will leave and….who knows what will happen.

    As for what I want. I want to deal with tough sensitive issues, but I want to do it as constructively as possible….but as honestly as possible as well.

    Ok I am tyoped out for now. I hope that helps.

  7. Glad you are back

    Of course its ok its not on the FP – I just wanted to be heard and hope you are not offeneded

    I believe in you and in Docudharma

    If people want to leave I hope they all leave quickly

    I am getting divorced

  8. essay. I am going to take your cue and get back to the real issues. I just wanted to make sure ‘the luv’ was still here and it is and I feel it.

  9. each person must do what they must do in freedom…

    what do I mean by that….

    do not condition your participation in change on the presence or absence of others…..

    determine for yourself….

    do not let others ups and down and complexty determine this for you….

    we must each author our freedom from within….

    otherwise we may become hostage to the need for drama of others…

    this does not bring disparate minds together….

    this divides marginally similar minds along lines of otherness…

    this is moving away from a cooperative response to actuality……

    ultimately it may well be our true downfall…

  10. to making choices based on individual needs and freedom
