Tibor, exasperated, reiterates:
>But I did want to warn about the dark side of the possibilities. Sigh.
and puts me in mind of a story:
When I was Seneschale of The Canton Formerly Known as Mynnyd Twr I had
a visitor. This lady was completely unknown to me, and showed up at my
doorstep ASKING FOR A PLACE TO STAY. After some discussion I learned
that she had called SCA corporate and asked for the local contact (me).
She was not, and as far as I could tell never had been, directly involved
with the SCA, but knew enough to track me down.
After hearing her background, I decided it was probably best for her to
seek lodging elsewhere (a VERY hard choice for me, and I did ask around
to see if anyone else would be willing to take her in). I learned a very
important lesson that day....
Even if you WANT to be found, you are not always found by those you want.
