The suggestion made by Carlos and endorsed by Daniel sounds like an
excellent idea, whether it be for a longer or shorter duration.  I
think it would be better to go longer to see if some of our quieter
members might not be persuaded to contribute as they become confident
that things are not going to descend into a lot of backbiting.  Either
way, Siva has held sway over the group long enough, perhaps it is time
to explore the energies of a more creative force.
