    Hi. I'm packing my bags and heading out. Will I be back? Well, that depends on wherever the path leads me.

    I'd like to give a shout-out to those who've helped me grow, whether they know it or not, and whether they intended to or not:

    @Jaguar
    @Unkindloving
    @Antimony
    @Peguy
    @Zarathustra
    @Marmie Dearest
    @Within
    @YWIR
    @senza_tema
    @Vasilisa

    and truly, everyone else who's been in my presence.

    I'd like to refer to some quotes:

    Anyone who wants to know the human psyche will learn next to nothing from experimental psychology. He would be better advised to abandon exact science, put away his scholar's gown, bid farewell to his study, and wander with human heart through the world. There in the horrors of prisons, lunatic asylums and hospitals, in drab suburban pubs, in brothels and gambling-hells, in the salons of the elegant, the Stock Exchanges, socialist meetings, churches, revivalist gatherings and ecstatic sects, through love and hate, through the experience of passion in every form in his own body, he would reap richer stores of knowledge than text-books a foot thick could give him, and he will know how to doctor the sick with a real knowledge of the human soul. -- Carl Jung

    For a truly religious man nothing is tragic. -- Ludwig Wittgenstein

    Greatness is a transitory experience. It is never persistent. It depends in part upon the myth-making imagination of humankind. The person who experiences greatness must have a feeling for the myth he is in. He must reflect what is projected upon him. And he must have a strong sense of the sardonic. This is what uncouples him from belief in his own pretensions. The sardonic is all that permits him to move within himself. Without this quality, even occasional greatness will destroy a man.

    How often it is that the angry man rages denial of what his inner self is telling him.

    The Universe is God's. It is one thing, a wholeness against which all separations may be identified. Transient life, even the self-aware and reasoning life which we call sentient, holds only fragile trusteeship on any portion of the wholeness. -- Frank Herbert

    It's been good and bad, but it is becoming better every day.

    Congrats, bud -- this sounds about right to me.

    I hope your travels go well, and, if you need any self-proclaimed sage advice, you know where to reach me.

    Sometimes breaks or completely moving on is part of that overall growing process, so I can't whine too much.
    Take care, tater. You'll be most certainly be missed.

    It's been good and bad, but it is becoming better every day.


    Dammit Gingko, I told you I was leaving and you didn't tell me you were leaving! I barely said goodbye! And now I look like an asshole for not writing a thoughtful goodbye message to everyone with quotes and, and, and, and—poignancy!

    Good luck, Gingko. I know that's a cliché thing to say to someone, to wish them luck, but I truly do it mean it. My life's a-changin' too, so I empathize.


    Well, it's not as though this the first time I've made myself look like an asshole. Ask Zang! He knows! Something to do with my sacral chakra makes me an asshole and/or a dick. (Bye Zang. )




    That's right kids, I'm outta here too. I got a new job and frankly I can't afford to surf my days away on TypologyCentral. I have to be 'productive'. :/

    Some of you already know this; for what it's worth I figured I ought to at least write a little goodbye note for everyone else. That and to give a slightly better explanation to the people who already knew I was leaving, to whom I should apologize for being unnecessarily cryptic. Sorry. I'm not very good at goodbyes. I had been trying to put more forethought into this but truth be told I'm not really sure what to say so I'm just winging it.


    Special thanks (and apologies) to the Ventrilo crew. (I won't name names because I'm sure to forget one or two.) We've had some strange discussions, some very silly babblings, and some very poignant, thought-provoking, heartbreaking and touching conversations. Not popping in anymore will be very hard. It's only been a day that I've gone without and it's already damn hard, and I sincerely miss the hell out of many of you. Truth be told I deleted Ventrilo right off my computer last night because it's just too tempting to "stop by". "Stopping by" always turns into parking myself in front of the computer for a few hours, which I can't afford to do anymore. No self-control!


    I had intended on turning off private messages, scrambling my password to the site and never, ever coming back (to be honest I've been a little concerned about my online privacy too) but I don't think I can bring myself to just cut off all contact like that. For what it's worth I'll keep the private messages on and forward them to e-mail, if anyone is interested in keeping in touch. Sorry that that puts the onus on you, it's a little selfish of me, but, well...


    Bye everybody.
