fund-raise or not for CCD hosting - discuss and organise here.

a place to discuss this, or not....

Dear everyone,

CCD has been an interesting experiment.  I cherish seeing what people are passionate about.  There are some great events listed.

However, I have not had the time or energy in to raise the hosting cost needed  - I have done this now for several years, and will not be doing so.

I am curious therefore just…

The construction of the word "mindfull-ness" seems a bit misleading as if it's about something that needs to become manifest as a result, a…

Poem inspired by Kevics students art exhibition


The youngsters are creating,

playing with jags of lightning,

tugging with love cross-dressed

teddy-bears, gazing over

cracked sea-lines, ripping photos of

themselves, smashing bones

I know some of you share against Facebook. I was wanting to do this recently and found it wasn't working. Someone else's been in touch with me about this as well.

To give you an update, I've contacted the support  people, will update you when I know more.

If anybody knows anything about this, do feel free to share with us.

Warmth and Love

CCD has been such a vital channel for informing me of community events over the last few years, unless sufficient funds have been donated, I would be willing to try and raise the funds needed for its continuation.
