I so enjoy/ed having you post here - saw a painting of you as George Washington, yesterday? but was on the way to the oral surgeon with a husband in tooth agony and didn't have time to comment. I loved it!

I wish you knew how much I appreciate you and your input and posts and paintings here and how disappointing it is to sign on this morning and you are no longer here.

Most others who have moved on haven't bothered me so much, it was time, but you I've always looked forward to your posts. I do respect, though, that clearly, you think it is time, too.

Take care out there in the world. I hope you decide to come back but if not, so be it.

As for me, I'll be back after our week off, dancing at a huge hippie fest that's gone on for over 50 years, off in the mini-forest, under a canopy of trees, a get away we haven't participated in in over two decades.

Getting back to our dancing roots - while all our sons take over the homestead, here.

Best to you and big hugs, dear one.

xoxo  Anna

Okay, looked for some brilliant insightful quote to add and.... nada. but this one seemed most like my thoughts and feelings today, and what seems to be disappearing in the world, everywhere (hence our deciding to head to the hippie fest stuffed with wonderful weird people and music and dance and sculptors and painters and artists and freaks).

Be well ~

poets, misfits, writers
mystics, painters, troubadours
for they teach us to see the world through different eyes.”

...and what?

"However, we, each of us, must have skins thick enough to not require that we tiptoe around one another on eggshells...

How boring and dull would it be if we did nothing more than approve and echo?"

LOL  The "Turkeys can't fly" clip did fit your "flounce" comment pretty well, didn't it!   The only problem is you snuck that comment in before I could post mine in RE the comments preceding yours.

(In other words, I have exactly ZERO patience with people who "claim" they don't scheme behind the scenes via PMs and then "brag" about either not getting any THIS TIME or brag about "indepth" PM discussions.)

As for FM?  I think of her as a friend, though our friendship has been "strained" as of late (which is why I no longer comment on any of her posts about "art"), but she is going to do what she is going to do.  None of us have to like it, just as none of us have the right to second guess her decision.

P.S.  Have fun hippyfesting (is that even a word???) and dancing, Anna.  Be sure to send us all a macrame postcard or what ever such they might be bartering.

Oh, geeez...  I just had a mental picture flash through my head of FM running away to go write poetry with Doc Vega.

Now I'm off to the Hy-Vee to buy brain bleach.

Fuck off Amy.


Confidential exchanges are just that. It would be in appropriate to say more.

Stay classy, AKA.

(I also love how you do your Trumpish "incivility" shtick when someone you don't like says anything, but you can go full asshat when ever you please...  guess that is because you are "special" huh?)

To say we need new blood is stating the most obvious blatant in your face object of all time. That said, you are all, and I do mean all, wonderful in your own ways. We should be much more popular of a site, lorianne has been amazing from day one, but, anyone who could get this back to writing more and arguing left vs. FAR LEFT less would be a boon to society.

As far as FM, sometimes brilliant, sometimes one of the most stubborn myopic humans I've encountered. Was she a Gemini? Wish her the best in her Real Estate dealings and elsewhere, brush in hand, despite it all ...

I don't think you are stupid Amy, just good at playing the part.

Comment by koshersalaami on July 12, 2018 at 6:00pm

I don’t find FM myopic. 

Comment by Ron Powell on July 12, 2018 at 6:25pm

@AKA; "Confidential exchanges are just that. It would be in appropriate to say more."

That being the case, you should not have disclosed the fact that you had such an exchange with FM...

Confidentiality covers both the occurrence and the content...

Comment by Maui Surfer on July 12, 2018 at 6:25pm

For all our similarities in POV, you and I are so different Kosh. Sometimes I found FM to be the most narrow minded, blinder wearing, and, to use the dictionary terms- lacking foresight and intellectual insight, but, hey, that's on me and I never would have brought it up if not for this post, no reason to try and cut her down, we are all simply discussing a departure as near as I can see ... whoops, does that make me myopic?
