A brief Farewel

Postby Lori Koonce » Wed Feb 24, 2010 6:34 pm

Gang

I won't name names, but there is someone here who is driving me batshit.

And seeing as how I cannot control anothersbehaviour, the best thing I can do is to get away from this place for awhile.

I've come to realize that no matter what I or the few others who try to get thru say, nothing is going to change the persons ideas, opinions or outlook on life. I'm doing enough verbal fist fighting in my REAL TIME LIFE to allow myself to do it here too.

Rest assured that I'll be back. Maybe spending the weekend away from both my computer and my home will do me the good I'm hoping it will.

Godspeed Lori, and I promise not to do it again...
- I love to find adventure. All I need is a change of clothes, my Nikon, an open mind and a strong cup of coffee.

Everybody needs a vacation but don't be gone too long.

And when you come back bring Gwyneth and Neon with you.

Lori,

You will be missed, although hopefully only briefly

Take care of yourself and I know we will talk soon

All the best,

Mark

MR Evil

Due to the worst parts of my misspent youth, my dad told me that the longest I can ever stay with him and my mom again is three days.

I just need some normalicy in my life. Watching TV without 4 or 5 people bitching about my choice is a nice thing once in a blue moon. Mom cooks better than I do and there is always a gallon of milk around with my name on it... Not that I drink it all, but I could and that's what counts.

Lori - That's what we call "cave time" in my tribe - extraction from the noise and clutter and annoyances and the external things that clog us up, with some room to breathe, to tune out, to remember what we enjoy and just do it.

I hope it proves restorative.

Lori I was actually referring to the length of your absence here. From the tone of your first post, I'd thought you'd be going away for months.

A weekend isn't that long but it's still too long.
