Come Sail Away

Here's a wonderful article on the joys of open water sailing by my good friend Elisha Paklena Baby Steps (or, Mowry to Benicia) in the SL Sailing Blog .
There are all kinds of sailors in SL - open water, solitary, team, course racers, open water racers, meditators, teachers, organizers, explorers, experimenters, scripters, testers, cruisers, designers, and drunks. ;) Some are many of the above. The SL sailing blog is a great resource for all - check it out! Newcomers to racing are always welcomed with open arms!

We Know Drama

Generally, if I see a sign like this posted in an area, my brain translates it immediaely into "We Know Drama". It's a red flag for folks who have trouble communicating effectively and have poor conflict resolution skills. They're usually generally nice folks, and frequently rather charming and even engaging, especially at first, but things tend to disintegrate after a while, until they predictably explode.

Everyone has friends like this. They blunder around, wondering why there is so much drama everywhere. Limp wrist to agonized forehead, they bemoan the problems that they are having with EVERYONE. Apparently EVERYONE is a drama queen, and they will go on and on to some degree about how awful it is, never suspecting that the one thing that EVERYONE has in common is interaction with themselves.

The logical converse of "I am having a problem with EVERYONE" is "EVERYONE is having a problem with me." But, lacking insight, they never quite make that leap and go on to assume that "new friends" must be the answer, seeking new, unsuspecting victims, errrr friends.

So, if you see some person wearing a "No Drama" button or tshirt, or has this sign hanging in their club or home, don't say I didn't warn you. ;)
