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'>
