I think I may be coming back to DA to visit my old friends here again. While I didn't quite drop off the edge of the planet, I might as well have. The last year has been a time of healing from a lifetime of painful events.
I don't want to bore you all with the details. There is no point in whining about what was. The point is, quite a number of things are different now, and because of this I am starting to feel like a human being again. My home has at last become a place of peace instead of constant strife. After years of effort, things in my personal life are starting to pull together.
(Of course now an orange baboon is trying to get into the White House and turn it whiter than white. But that's just the universe messing with me because it can.)
I'm feeling better. I want to reconnect with the world, with good people, with kind friends. So I will try to come back at least once a week to check on my friends, see what's going on, hear about your successes and failures, your hopes and dreams, your delights and comforts.
But there is one thing I have to confess: There is no WAY I'm going to be able to go through 4,597 deviations first! Sorry, but I am going to have to delete them all and start afresh. And I'll have to do some house-cleaning as well, and delete some of the presumably "dead" accounts. After that we'll have to see. I have very little time in my life, and very little time left of my life.
But I want to come back and see my friends.
