Will the last person to leave please turn off the lights?

This, being the day of the September Full Moon, seems as good a day as any to make the decision to lay this blog to rest.

Autumn, being my favourite season, is a fitting time for this to happen. Because, at this time of year, the world around us is filled with an amazing sense of colour in preparation for the end of a life-cycle. While this is generally a cause for sadness, this annual ending reminds us all that a new, young season will soon be upon us.

The decision to stop blogging came to me in a really poor sleep last night. I am not usually one to make such snap decisions but after yesterday's post, I just really couldn't go on with putting myself and my opinions out there. I cannot really explain that well, except to say that perhaps this is time to end that life-cycle and start with a new one. A life cycle where I don't sit on the sidelines and make commentary but one that I actually live. One in which I make something of my inspirations instead of sharing them with everyone and thus making them less meaningful.

That said, I don't feel that this is a sad ending. It is one of a passing and then a renewal. One where I actually follow my bliss instead of spending my time talking about it.

I would like to say thank you to all of you out there who've been dropping by and gracing this space with their presence for the years that I've been spouting off. There are those that keep in touch outside of this medium and I encourage you all to continue in whatever form of mail (e- & snail) you choose. I really do appreciate you keeping in touch. As well, I'll be leaving the links to my favourite sites in the sidebar to forward folk who stop by here to some really amazing spaces that are still "in action". And, if you happen to be one of those folks who happens across this, drop me a line. The email is always working! (Spammers will be prosecuted)

As well, I'm going to leave the comments up so if anyone has anything to say or wants to post a poem, I would love to hear from you. (I will be checking up from time to time)

A special thank you goes out to Robert, David, the guys at TAG, Rad, Mr. A., Kaoru-san, Viktor, Yummy M and everyone else who I can see has dropped by. Keep up the good work and keep in touch! Mwaaa!
