A week later, the individual wants to return it because it is 'too smokey'. Hmm. With the small flurry of emails which went back and forth, it occurred to me that perhaps the individual was not familiar with using resin incense.
Just so you know....if you're clumsy enough to set off the fire alarm, sometimes a wet towel can help dampen out the smoke before it starts making the detector squeal. But if you've got a fancy house, and something like security monitoring, it's kind of handy to know beforehand, so you don't have to pay the outrageous fees for false alarms. Being able to humble yourself and just plain 'ole ask questions might save you a headache, a heartache, or keep you from second-guessing yourself. You don't have to worship some showcase guru, you don't have to be pressured to join in a group, or do anything you don't want to do. But being able to talk shop can give you all sorts of insights you didn't realize you needed.
