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!

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))

I'll miss you. However, this is a great sign that ya got ya strength back. Livin' the life, again.

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.

In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida, baybuh, see I can speak another language, too.

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*
