Bittersweet moment for us all! We're losing a JB, but you're moving on to things better for you. I wish you the best of luck. Now you're more like a guardian angel, watching over us without us knowing. No worries:) (and I really mean that last phrase)

Despite you and other people never seeing eye, I've allways admired your courage to say things with thoughts to back it up even though you got some critism for it.

We never really talked, but you've always been a presense here sense I arrived, and its going to be wierd without you. Good luck with all your further journeys, and thanks for all the fun. (even if I was merely an observer.)

that's all she wrote....

My official statement on departures is that they're all very Corinthians 1 (13:11), in an amusing trendy nomadic cyberspace kind of way.

Other than that, I am fittingly without words. Save perhaps, that while you won't here be making yours, you will be somewhere making them. And that is important.

I have also started a writing project elsewhere in this web.

And it occurs to me that I kind of feel like I've been cheating on this partner that I've had since I was seventeen. Writing elsewhere as adultery. Oasis as wife, Livejournal as mistress. And I stay here because I love my wife, matrimonial loyalty, a community that I made a strange sort of home when I needed that. And I write there because the other woman gives me different things.

My tangent. Because you wanted one.

So I sat here and thought of

So I sat here and thought of many things that I could say to you my dear JB, none seemed fitting. Simplicity is the key here I do believe. Goodbye for now. :-)

I only hope Oasis will be able to withstand the loss and still be as respectable as it is now.

p.s Can't tell you how much I love Frank Sinatra
