How long have you been a volunteer Barbara? I have been a volunteer for five years and we keep re-hashing the same difficulties for the entire five year period. That is the reason I am discouraged.

Why are you discouraged? You had one bad conversation, that's all. I understand why you want to stop volunteering for a while. It takes so much time if you are conscientious.Elizabeth and Burton <thoth93@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> wrote: Folks I am releasing some books. I am doing so because I realize I need to take a break from volunteering. The phone call with Gustavo was the final straw. Perhaps I should have emailed him rather than trying to have a conversation. I will finish what I am working on and then only take on things very selectively. I did enough validating last year to entirely pay for this year's subscription. I am stepping back for now until I feel less sad and discouraged. E.
