Thank you.

For several reasons I will not be writing this blog again.

I would like to thank the many people who have shown interest and left kind comments. I will be reading your blogs, but not commenting under this name.

I send you all my very best wishes.
I have enjoyed meeting you.

I am raising a toast to serendipity. You were there when I needed it.
I knew it when I saw your last post. That's a lovely tribute I thought. Although it took a couple of days to reason it out.
Thankyou so much for your hospitality.
I have dropped in every day and used your links as a spring board. It has been like popping in on a friend.
God Bless

But,... but,... where will we go now to read such distinctive and wonderful writing!?

I've loved coming here to read and laugh and ponder. I do hope we'll get many more opportunities to enjoy your writing, whether it's as a blog or in other forms.

Zhoen said...

I'm sad, of course. I've only just found you.

Please feel free to write me directly,

joan at xmission dot com.

Now this makes me sad. Sigh. I can only echo Pohangina Pete.

Thank you for the pleasure your blogging has given in all its moods and textures, RR. You write so well and I too hope that you will continue in some shape or form. And thank you, of course, for introducing yourself to me.

I'm just glad we aren't losing touch in real life.

leslee said...

Oh dear. Hope we see you online elsewhere, and perhaps you'll find another outlet for your wonderful writing and perspective. You know where I am!

persiflage said...

I hope all is well with you, and wish you well in the future. Yours has been a most interesting and thought-provoking blog, and I will miss it - but perhaps contact can continue?

Relatively Retiring said...

Thank you all so much for your wonderfully warm responses. You almost give me the courage to continue. Almost!

den: I'm so glad that I was able to give something you needed, and it's lovely that you used my links and made new friends through them -I've been watching!
PPete: just thank you.
Zhoen: I'm touched by your response. Thank you so much.
mm:a great bonus of the blog has been meeting you for real.
Leslee: thank you. I'll be reading and appreciating!
Persiflage: my e-mail remains on the blog. Thank you for your many kind and generous comments.

And I have only just found you - I have hardly begun to know you. Perhaps we shall find you somewhere else on the web some day. I hope so.

I am so sad
I hope that all is well with you
I will miss you

Relatively Retiring said...

Judith and Mouse: Thank you so much for your kind comments, now and previously. I will be following your blogs with interest.

Anne-Marie said...

Oh Judith, I'm so sad to hear this. I haven't commented much, but I have enjoyed much. You are a truly gifted writer.

Still, some times these decisions have to be made. I too hope we'll see your writing else where.

I haven't forgotten I owe you an email :-)


Relatively Retiring said...

Anne-Marie: I appreciate your comment, from one writer to another.
At least I have learned to use a digital camera, although not everyone will agree with that statement!

Really sorry you're going. Your posts have been thought-provoking, and I shall miss your writing.

All the very best to you


Relatively Retiring said...

Jan: thank you for your support and kind comments. It's touching that I seemed to have reached so many people.

herhimnbryn said...

Hope all is well with you dear rr.
I shall miss your thoughts and words. But we do what we must, when we must.
Take great care.

Relatively Retiring said...

HHnB: When I can I'll be reading and enjoying your posts, and thank you again for your kind comments.

Peregrina said...

Dear R.R., I'm so sorry not to have your blog to pop into for new ideas, new perspectives on life, for something new to think about. You've made me laugh with your wit, as well as sometimes bringing a tear to my eye, and always you've provided food for thought. I'll miss your writing, but at least your posts are still there to reread.

Relatively Retiring said...

Peregrina: Thank you so much for the very kind comments. Yes, I will leave the blog sitting there! I'm glad that I've learned a bit about blogging, and even more glad that I have encountered so many warm and responsive people.

Isabelle said...

Oh, no! How sad for us all. I too have so much enjoyed your writing. At least you've announced your departure, though. It's even sadder when people simply vanish.

Do let us know if you decide to return.

Relatively Retiring said...

Isabelle: Thank you.

Kat said...

I will miss your writing. I am sad. But I hope you are well. My comments, although very late in response to your last post, are sincere.

Take care,

CC said...

Don't leave yet, I've just discovered your blog!
