I'm guessing that it all boils down to this, Morgan....there are those who think it's better on the other side, and those who think it's worse. There are those who think that there's nothing on the other side. There are also those who don't care what's on the other side, because they know that it's going to come by sooner or later, and whatever happens, it's probably a permanent kind of change that will cut them off from the learning process, instead of the opposite.  And there are those who actually like it here, despite the problems.  You obviously belong to the first category.

   There are also those who feel that a good afterlife is something that has to be earned by little steps as well as by leaps and bounds. You seem to know that the good times are just waiting for you on the other side, no matter how you deal with the life that you are presently within, and that because there is pain, suffering, and hardship here, it can't be worth the struggle to survive and to try and make it better here not only for yourself, but for others here as well.... that it's not even part of the equation or the remedy for what happens next.  You may be right.  I hope so for your sake. rip

Judging by a couple things you two have said as of late, Dnekm and Leilah, it sounds as if you're thinking of moving out of New Orleans altogether.... I sure hope that if this is so, that you find a better place and area, that is to say, one more suited to your liking for this day and age (oops, I said the bad word).
I also hope that you two are not going to abandon us or the Azreal Project either.... but that's a selfish thought opon my part.  Azreal knows I'm selfish.

We had an absolutely AWFUL day today. We decided to fire our current Real Estate agent because we simply cannot trust him anymore as we caught him in too many lies and disreputable behavior. Besides, it's been on the market 3 months and he's shown it to all of 8 or 9 people, and the one DECENT offer we got, we got from the prospective party AFTER the fact because our "agent" never presented it to us. It all has to do with a little known clause called "dual agency". He was trying to stiff the prospective buyer's agent out of his cut of the commission. I wouldn't have even KNOWN about any of this if the prospective buyer (an adjunct law professor) didn't send me a letter directly with the (now expired and useless offer)

Okay, we let it slide for a week or so, believing our agent's line of BS, "I never got the offer. I don't know ANYTHING about it" crap.

No showings last week. Today, he brings by one woman and we tell him (in private, of course), that we need to talk to him, can he please come back after he drops off the lady. He snaps at Daniel, "What do you wanna talk about. Tell me now." We're trying to spare him embarrassment in front of a potential client. So, he comes running to me, and I tell him point blank, "We're taking the house off the market for a while to rethink our strategy." He RUNS AWAY!!! Cops an attitude eight miles high.

We give him time to drop off the lady at her hotel. Dan calls him on his cell phone. "We need a copy of the listing agreement that shows it is canceled."

"Maybe, in a couple of days, I'll fax it or something."
Dan- "We need it to read that it is void as of this date."
Him- "Oh, I'm not writing void on it."
Dan"Why not?"
Him- "I'll withdraw it from the market."
Dan- "why can't you just void it."
Him "Have your attorney contact me..." and he hangs up on Dan. All with a VERY UNPROFESSIONAL demeanor.

I call him back, blah, blah , blah. Just give us something stating that we longer have a contract. He can't come down he's soooooo busy. Okay, we'll come to you. We have to close up shop, Dan rips down his signs and we go to him.

He's sooooo busy doing NOTHING in his house. He practically throws an envelope at me. I open it up, it's some photocopied crap that I can barely read. He didn't even want to let me in! I tell him that I need something with an ORIGINAL SIGNATURE. He hems and haws and grumbles. I even say to him that we are exercising a VERBAL option he gave us when we first signed, which was "Anytime you guys want to take it off the market, no sweat, I'm easy!" YEAH! RIGHT!

Anyway, I know that he's aiming to try and fuck us over in some way. That's the kind of person he turned out to be. I was even going to be so kind as to add an addendum to the release that stated, if ANYONE he showed it to ended up making an offer we would accept, that I'd HAPPILY pay his commission, but at this point, we may need to hire an attorney...........just to sell a fucking house!!!!!!!!!!!!!  :pissedoff:

This is OUTRAGEOUS and I am VERY UPSET!

So, you know what we did when we got home? We put a fucking FOR SALE BY OWNER sign on BOTH houses. We're so fucking outta here, it's not funny!

After that, I contacted the real estate agent that sold me this house 17 years ago. She was in her 60's then, so I didn't think she'd be practicing anymore. If I had know she was I would have given her the listing in a heartbeat. She's a great person, honest and don't take no crap from anyone. I told her what transpired, now she's going to take this contract to her firm's attorney and see if we can get fucked over in any way or not.....and I'll give BOTH listings to her on Monday.

Yes, Darkus, we will eventually be moving. Might be a while though, owing to the above...  :shake:

Now you see those forces we talked about?  :eyemouth:

Yes, My Lady, I do see the forces that you are dealing with....I have preceived them accurately, and I am still in combat against them, full force-I have not relented one inch.... these adversarial powers pitted against you (and I) are strong indeed.... I am still in a defensive mode, with my skeleton warriors faithfully by my side, doing their damnedest to protect me against the onslaught that I have freely chosen to take on.... I am certain that if they do not defeat me within the next 5 days and nights, the tide will begin to turn against those forces that are set against you.... I hope Russalka is out there somewhere helping me, but then again, I worry about her well-being as well, I wish no harm to come to her.... it's just at times I feel so very weak, and I never know just when those bastards are going to get me to fold.  I am still determined and have adhered to the battle plan.  My Skeleton Warriors, each wearing a medallion made by you as a focus for their hearts, salute you, as do I as well!!!

Leilah and Dan, may the gods be with you.

Darkus, I see the Otherside as offering a school where you learn the Truth, as opposed to having nothing but illusion to bide your time with.  Then, there's the company, and method of communication.  There's a lot of individuals I want to meet who aren't here anymore, and telepathy rocks.

You may be right, Morgan: I cannot deny your abilities when it comes to telepathy and other esoteric insights as well....
I dunno what's for sure for you, what's for sure for me, what's for sure for others, or even if we have any input to the process.... I admit I hope that you are right, as it sure makes facing the other side look like a cake-walk.... I can be wrong without regrets.... but I choose to prepare for all contingencies any way I can.

At any rate, I have my hands full right now constructing re-enforcements for my battle lines.... things that fly.... Bless you and take care.... :rose:

Finally winding down from today.... yes, it was a shitty one....  :banghead:

I still can't believe that we have to go through so much bs just to sell a fucking house.... But then, maybe if our supposed real estate agent were ethical to begin with....  :banghead:

We actually re-opened today with normal hours from a three week summer hiatus and because of this shit I had to turn people away, and then we had to close to go and corner the damn agent. We should charge him for lost business.....

gawd jeebuss damn... sorry to hear all of that bs Leilah and Daniel.... I truly hope everything turns out - and not just that - but in as timely manner as possible. You two have been through a lot, and definitely deserve a break! Good 'luck' and blessings to you both!

My best wishes as well, for getting out of N.O., Leilah and Dan.

Darkus, I think everyone's reality is different.  I just see what's for me.  Anyone who wants is invited to my world, though if you aren't a co-op, creative type, you won't be terribly happy with us, and you won't last, not that I'm talking to you personally, here.  (You personally would probably fit right in.)  Even the Bhagavad Gita says, what you expect, you will find, on death.  I can live with that. :eyemouth:

Your countenance, unwavering conviction, and firm stance in what you believe is impressive, Morgan.  Underneath your apparent negativity I sense great strength and a positive disposition.... your attitude towards death seems to create a superstructure that allows you to deal with life and to quite readily be able to accept its termination in whatever form that death may come, when it comes.  I wish I could hold your hand, if only for a little while.... You make me think, you give me hope, and your ideas are not unfounded.... I'm even glad to hear that you are not all that crazy about make-up.

Last night, I constructed a number of flying things and released others to support my skeletons in this war against those forces that seek to stigmatize Leilah. After rush hour, I am going out in search for others than I most definitely have in mind.... they dive like falcons on their prey and herald their their approach with screaming cries....
