Thank you for telling that story. I am a newbie as of about 4 months ago.
Have membership card and everything. But I am so terribly scared of doing
something wrong that I have't been to my first event yet. I have made garb for myself
and daughter but haven't worn it. I have heard of the Garb-Nazis and I think
there are some in my local Shire. But no one has stepped up yet to show their
colors. I am scared to death of going any further into my personna than name
and century for fear of doing something wrong. I am so interested in the SCA
and no one is going to scare me away completely. But I sure am having a hard
time getting started. Can't find the help and advice I need.

do regret me - religious thought "of Oure Tymes" postulated that - The Moste High
Creator, being Omnipotent, could alter Time according to Hys Desire since He created
Time along with all else of Hys Creation; and could thus shorten whole Ages into an
subjective instant; or stretch an instant unto a subjective Infinity. [A Discourse, methinks,
of the sayme Ordere of Logic as thattë of "how manye Angels myght dance upon the
hedde of a pin", upon the wych much Scholarly passion hath been expended, as I doe
heere.] Thus, a Soul's journey unto it's Final Reward myght be subjectively as short or as
long "timewise" as that Soul's earthly conduct might require.
