Today was another in a series of days spent slightly dizzy and out of it. I have to wonder if I'm not fighting off a cold or something. I've managed a little bit of work around the house, but that's about it. Still with the slight headache (it's better today than yesterday), but the dizziness was more to the fore.

Needless to say, I wasn't in any shape to drive, so I didn't get out to the Shinto shrine.

I did get a chance to go over the notes I was sent the other day about a PCon presentation and will be getting a few comments together for the woman who sent them. She's doing a session on Pagan pastoral counseling, talking about the community's need for some kind of recognition, and how Pagans are routinely shut out of the process even if they have qualifications within our own communities. It's important stuff and I'm honored she would think I'd have useful things to say on the topic.

As to the "unusual" bit of the day, I got an email through my website from a guy who was spouting some really awful racist nonsense six or so years back. He says he's changed and he's offered an apology of sorts to the community. I do believe people are capable of change. I don't know what he's been doing in the intervening years, so I can't speak to that. I do know that it takes some guts to offer an apology after something that egregious, particularly years later, when one might instead hope that it's forgotten. I'm posting it here below the cut, unaltered, for folks to read for themselves.

He's included an email address where people can contact him if they have questions. There's also a link included to a post where I talked about what he'd been saying, so that there is some context here.

I'm still all headachey today, no real improvement. I'm supposed to go out to a local Sherlock Holmes society thing tomorrow in Puyallup, then to Seattle on Sunday for one with the Sherlock Seattle fandom. I need to try and get some rest and get rid of this beast, because the drive to Puyallup is going to take a while and the gathering is at about 1pm. This means I have to get up early for me.

Somebody suck the headache out, would you?
