Meeting today accomplished a few things. First, I managed to confuse the board members as to why I wouldn't want to wear day-glow robes. Crazy Farang, I know. But they are supportive, and confident that they can figure out a solution to our dilemma. On the plus side, it sounds like by May there will be a place to stay at the new location, for myself at least, with more room for guests to come.
In unrelated but equally plus news, I now have a phone number: +1 (818) 925 4329 Not that I will be answering calls or anything but... please leave a message, I'll meditate on it.
