I know it's been a while

Hey all.

I know a lot of you have missed me. Modesty might make me describe that as a surprise, but since I've missed you all, too, I guess it's not that surprising.

What has been a surprise has been how many people took it personally, as if it was something I was doing to them, or as if it were because of something they might have done to me.

Just to clear that up: it's not. Besides the very real busyness with which I've been occupied, the real major issue seems to be how I can adjust to the change in my personal role, from someone who was involved in everything, to someone who maybe gets to say Hi every once in a while. It was easier not to come at all ...

I'm still learning. Things like who I am, and what it means for me to be here (wherever I happen to be.) It'll be some time yet before I'm perfect. :-P I'll keep working on it if you will.

As for the news: "discovery" on the divorce case is finished. And the new protective order that the wife swore out, describing my supposed hiring or persuading people to stalk her, hack her computers, take photos of her in public, etc., was thrown out of court for lack of evidence, which should be obvious, because why would I do any of that stuff?

Anyway ... it makes me realize that she has issues of her own. Obviously, she has anxiety, and a certain amount of paranoia going on. I'd even feel a bit of sympathy if I weren't the target of it all. Being relatively harmless, however, I just have a hard time understanding it.

So ... I hope you'll all behave, and I know you well enough to know that you won't. :-P

Just take care of each other, okay?

In the long run, that's really what we're all here for.

Nice to hear from you and nice to hear your humor again ;-)!!

I'm so glad that the difficulties with the divorce are over. It's unbilievable that someone like you can be a target of such an imputation.

What has been a surprise has been how many people took it personally, as if it was something I was doing to them, or as if it were because of something they might have done to me.

Oh, really? What an apposite example of a kind of transference :-P!

Good luck in choosing who to be!!! The best I can say here is to quote what you once wrote to me:

"You're a good person. I trust you to make the decision that's right for you." ;-)

Mark: I was sure missing you. I didn't realize you were leaving as admin. Gosh, I can also swear that you were here 24 hours a day, 7 days a week extending a helping had and did not have time for anything else.:(

Do keep in touch and take care. Cathy

Hi Mark,

Happy to hear you are making some headway in your divorce. We all deserve to live free lives. What state is it that has the licence plate "Live free or die" ? Very true, part of us dies if we are not free. So - here's to your freedom!!
