    Personal emotional healing, and a return soon to Foo.

    My dear Foo-peeps. I was in such intractable emotional pain when I first arrived in Foo in Nov 2006, I could not always think straight. Yet, you all put up with me, gently and solicitously, checking in on my well-being when I was too silent, cajoling me when I was on board. I thank you all.

    But I've finally reached a point where I must interact physically and emotionally with people who exist immediately here in my real life. Another source of new pain and stress, as you can imagine. But, I know, even if I don't hear from you, you have all made me stronger. Again, I thank you all.

    I will check in on Foo soon. But it seems that being away for a while is a part of my emotional healing. Some of you will understand this. Others, just have to trust Vega. <very serious Vega look>

    I will return soon. And, in the meantime, I hug you all. (Pour les francophones parmi vous: je vous embrace, et très fort.)

    For now, goodbye, and I will see you all again very soon. <blowin' Vega kisses to all, with tears on cheeks, slinkin' off, so reluctantly, to further healin'>

    We'll be here for you, Vega! You are right, by the way, you do need to keep plugged in to life! Good fortune, and PM me if you need a sympathetic ear to bend!

    Hey, Pretty Lady, good luck on the next step. Ditto to what Tom said, we will be here, if only ephemerally, for you when you need a Stella-soaked Foo laughfest.
    Big hugs, grosses bises!
    Hi. I don't think we've been introduced. I'm awesome.

    Thanks, Tom. You were my first BF and Foo friend. How appropriately that you "let me go" for a while. <smile> Thank you, and, be assured, I will check in again, and soon.

    Hugs and love to you, darling! We all need to take breaks every now and then. I hope you are filled with so much peace while you are away that it will be just oozing from you when you return.

    Thanks, Shad. Still here for a few moments, lurking, as I will, no doubt, be doing in the next little bit.

    A hug to you, VV. I believe I understand what you need to do. Think of us on lovely springtime rides, which I know you'll be taking.

    I'm not saying good bye to you Vega. You know that you have impacted me in many positive ways and you will never leave my heart. I know you are going to be okay and need to take care of things.

    Just remember that we do love you here and you know that I am serious. You are my sister. Always.


    --Plus I'll call ya to check on ya!

    ((hugs))

    BTW, I have to tell you I was in a resturant the other day, and, well, I ordered a Stella. So, I guess you had an impact on me.

    We'll miss you VV, but a break from Foo was necessary for me too a couple of weeks ago I know the feeling. The real world is important. We'll be here when you get back. *hug*

    Hugs darlin, remember that our thoughts and prayers are always with you.
    "Let us hope our weapons are never needed --but do not forget what the common people knew when they demanded the Bill of Rights: An armed citizenry is the first defense, the best defense, and the final defense against tyranny. If guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns. Only the police, the secret police, the military, the hired servants of our rulers. Only the government -- and a few outlaws. I intend to be among the outlaws" - Edward Abbey
