I am posting one final time to say goodbye properly, and, as well, to clear up a mess caused by deleting an uncharacteristically hasty and messy post.
Yes, this is the last time I intend to post here for many reasons, most of them included in a post I did on my other blog; the blog I intend to continue to post to, when the spirit (the one I have left of the two that battled for control so recently) moves me.
I would especially like to thank my friends in Portugal who account for over 100, 000 of the over 500, 000 visits here. I really would have liked a comment or two from any one of you; ah well.
But, seriously, my sincere thanks to those who did comment so generously: Calie, Jenny, Petra, two Aunties, Dru, Melissa (rest in peace, love), and so many others who encouraged me at the beginning. A special shout-out to Tom, Lindsay, and Ellena (who left this world better by living and sadder by dying) who brought others here. She and they knew nothing about the world of a transgender woman, then learned more than they ever wanted to about this one in particular.
There are over a hundred followers, and I know most don't stop by anymore. And, yet, I also know that some do: Rouchswalwe, Joey, Emma, Anne, Lucy, and so many others whom I haven't heard from for ages, but remember fondly, and would love to catch up with.
There are others who became friends. I see them regularly, or irregularly. We talk or chat - thank you, too, and I hope to talk to you all soon ... tonight, in one case, I know already that we will chat.
So, I am fine ... everything is under control, apart from those things that should never be under control; the fun bits!
As Nadine tells us:
Blogger seems to be using my comments as a snack, as this is the third time I've tried to post to this. Hopefully this one escapes Blogger's notice and gets published. :c) Thank you for you always thoughtful posts here, Miss D; thankfully I have OTOH to let me continue to receive my Deanna fix! See you on the other side!ReplyDelete
Blogger is definitely doing strange things. Coline can't get into her blog now! I hope we can connect this spring, but if not, as you say, we shall see you on your blog and on the other side. ;-)ReplyDelete
What happens to the thoughts on this Blog?
How will it be if you press a delete key?
Are those kind thoughts allowed to roam free?
Where do thoughts go as blog ceases to be
Mind now the line of this haunting refrain
They continue forever so no need to explain?
Just leave it to be – best wishes from me!
I made a promise some time back to leave these thoughts, roaming free as you say, out here in the aether.Delete
Best Wishes to you too Lindsay, and, as Cassidy says, see you on the other side!
Good to know you are 'moving on' as they say, and pleased to read that your other blog is still operating. And thanks for the by-line!ReplyDelete
I recall very clearly our introduction: "Hello Halle." "Hello Tom." It has been and continues to be a worthwhile association.
A blog was the only way I could reach out at one time. I could never have imagined how important an act that was.Delete
Just a simple 'hello' can mean so very much!
Long may it continue, Tom.
All good things must come to an end at some point so others can be allowed to grow and flourish. See you in the spring!ReplyDelete
Looking forward to seeing you Joanna!Delete
