After all, it's not like I've ever forgotten you and this place...

I have missed you guys, and while I can't promise I'll be here regularly, I can at least say hi, chat a bit and tell you how horribly I've missed you (that is, a lot).

Welcome Back, Mel!

How've you been?

I'm (and vicariously graffalke) back after an extended hiatus..

We're in a new house with land and also have a new puppy..
graf is almost finished with college (gets his AA at the end of Summer)
We still have Romi and Lori.. they're fine too... Big Grin

You know, I could have definitely done better these last 3 years, and I'm not doing quite good, either, but I've found a few answers, learned to detach from material things and kept writing.

Kids, however, are a subject I'm not ready yet to talk about.

Marriage went all theway down to hell. Love is great, though, and the main source of my happiness, my antidote against this ruthless world, my pillar of flame through the desert.

I had to get back to mother's place because, besides being unemployed, I was assaulted last week, where I used to live (that's "battery", right?).

So, once again, trying to rise from the ground.

Sorry to ask, but, what's AA?

(I don't think it stands, in this case, for Anonymous Alcoholics)

Ian, my Ian!

*hugs tight*

I've missed you, my dear friend. We should talk, and soon.

I love you, but you know that Smile

You've seen the wedding pictures of David and I, right? If not, I'll send you a link to the online album.

*hugs again*

My Amy! I have so missed you, too. Badly.

*astral hugs*

And I love you too, which you also knew.

I did see a couple of pics, but I'd be more than glad (and begging) to watch the whole album.

*hugs. 'cause I might go away for a bit, but I'll be back. 'cause here is home*

I'm very sorry to hear that you have been having some bad times lately. I hope things improve soon.

Thanks, BeeZee. Squishyhugs are always good Smile


Alaura, it is indeed a haven, but only because all of you remain here. Without you, this place would be just another URL.


Smaug (I knew you were an admin now, but still, congrats on that), you can call this a nest, one that always pulled my heart in a good way - if I didn't come back earlier was only 'cause I had to deal with internal issues first; since after all this time I'm not yet done I might as well come here anyway, to meet the people who's always helped me to heal. And have fun.


Amy-tapata! I'm glad to see you too.


Maeve, thanks for the trust. And yes, I trust them, too (though I remember you. not clearly, butI do)


Wait, former daylseeper? Why aren't you a daysleeper anymore (which is a very, very good thing)? Anyway, had I known that I was so missed perhaps I'd come back earlier Smile

And don't worry about me having rough times. First, because everyone seems to be having'em; second, because I'm always in trouble - seriously, when haven't I been doing bad? ; and finally, because I rather count my (few) blessings than misfortunes or losses - hard to do, but I strive to be a more positive person in the face of adversity (usually failing, ut I keep trying Wink )

Thanks for that. Specially for the flowers, 'cause I never get flowers and, oddly, I'd like to, regardless that I prefer plants.
