Extremely well said, Elidh (especially the bulk that I cut). I applaud
you and your approach. Truly, the variety of approaches and talents
and focuses within our SCA bardic community is wonderful, inspiring,
and necessary. Each venue takes something different and not all of us
are best suited for each of them. Again, well said.
