 My apologies, Laird Ian. I didn't realize that I could or should come
to you, or I certainly would have. I was completely unaware that helping
out people who are struggling to find their place (and possibly have had
some bad experiences) were a part of your responsibilities. In truth, I
have no idea what all a Seneschal does.
 I am aware that because someone was unkind to me and because the next
thing I tried to get involved with was difficult that set a precedent
for me, and gave me a negative view of other things that I might have
dismissed otherwise. I am sorry that happened. I feel very defensive
that I finally chose to speak out and am concerned that those feelings
are coloring my responses. So I am thinking a lot about what I say or do
not say and hope that I do not offend anyone. Nonetheless, thank you for
telling me (and us all) that I can come to you. Although from the many
kind posts I received, both private and public, I know now that I have
many people I can go to when I feel like I don't fit in here. I thank
everyone for showing me that one (or even more than one) bad apple does
not spoil the whole barrel.

 I am hoping and praying that we can all get the misunderstandings and
miscommunications worked through as quickly as possible and come away
from this with a better understanding of our differences and a plan of
positive action for our future.

Thank you, Laird Ian, for your time and for your response,
