Welcome to my Parlour ...

On August 26th, 2010, my mother passed beyond the veil.
This event has become a catalyst for change in many and often profound ways in my life.
This is my way of chronicling those changes so that I may, at a later date, have the ability to review and reflect upon them.

Be careful what you ask for ...

... You just might get it and then some.

Well, I had been intending to do more with my Flame Keeping ... just hadn't expected it to be quite this way and quite this soon.

Spent yesterday sifting through the Ord Brighideach International website Cill rosters to create four Excel 'workbooks' ... one each for the Female Only, Male Only and CoEd Cills as well as one for the Individual Keepers by shift. An accurate (as possible considering that the website isn't working too well and the membership list is likely not up to date) accounting of who is tending what shift in each Cill with a view to helping the lass who is trying to get the whole shebang up and running again to determine what Cills need deleted and which ones have holes they need filled to create full rosters.

Then, once I had done that (including names and any email addresses and websites that may have been included in each person's public profile), I boiled it down into a single Word file that lists the Cills by name and records how many shifts are filled versus how many are empty.

Actually felt nice to be useful and to put my knack for obsessing over minutiae (as well as high tolerance for tedious work) to good use.
