Goodbye and Hello

I've just finished my last "Gazette" to my newsletter subscribers and it's a strange feeling--I know that I'm heading in the right direction for me, personally, but I hate to think that I've disappointed some folks.

If I have, I do apologize, but...but...

this online world we play in is fragile and ephemeral, in spite of archives and back-ups. If you have not gotten to a point in your life where your cup is half-empty, you may not be able to relate; but I need to create something real, something that you can hold in your hand and pass along.

In this age where we, as carbon-based life forms, are being told that we need to reduce our carbon footprint, I find that I want to leave a footprint--something that tells the world that hey, I was here!

But I promise that I'll make it a small footprint.
