on my islandness

Yes, I know that "islandness" is not a word. Just go with it.

It is very often that I say something and then continue to think about it days, weeks, months (or, even years) afterward. You'd be amazed. Or, just really, really sad.

A couple of posts ago, I wrote something about being an island or on an island, but that's really kind of silly. I have been thinking about this more and more lately. It just so happens that, at the moment, the more conservative members of the group are more vocal, which probably leads to those who are not like-minded being a bit more quiet. They might feel there isn't a place for their voice. In the meantime, I'm feeling that I have to be the somewhat neutral party in the room, but I hope our discussions can be a bit more balanced in the coming months.

So, that's what's been on my mind lately.
