where are so many of us?

where have they gone?

there are too many for me to name, and my memory is so bad i cant even try with names anymore.[wonderful aside.  new-old therapist told me today that i suffer from anxiety more than pretty much anyone she has ever seen.  who knew?  that was not fun to hear.  that made me cry, partly for me, and mostly for my son, who had to be raised by a woman with such out of control anxiety.]

havent seen bobbot in forever, and hasnt answered emails i have sent.

where is brassawe?  he was here.

mattie i get to talk to on facebook, so thats okay.

aint seen nana in forever.

catamite bastard, he did some seriously good writing.

squirrel.

i dont know who all.

I was missing Jerry who was the English professor and could really write.  I follow him on fb and he made an appearance a few days  ago but it was brief.  

So many come and go. 

Anxiety.  I hide and avoid most of it but it still catches me and takes my breath away.

Yeah, Jerry DeNuccio is missing and he was one of the best writers on the site. I don't know if he was an OS guy. I don't know where he went.

Bill Beck and Jan Sand left at the same time. I still talk to Bill once in a while and JMac talks to Jan. 

Brassawe just got married. To another blogger, I forget which one. 

Margaret Feike is still recovering from the loss of Jim Emmerling. Because she met him through OS and interacted with him a lot here, she associates the site with him and half expects to find him here. She has to get past that before she returns. 

Some people I gather just got busy with other stuff and aren't as vested here as they were on OS. You'll see them once in a blue moon, particularly if they hear something important happened, like a long time blogger died. Oryoki Bowl, Matt Paust, Cranky Cuss. Probably Gerald. 

If you want to know about Nana, ask Tr ig. He's still here and he'd obviously know. Same question about Tr ig's Significant Other. 

I PM'd a bunch of bloggers about some of these deaths and I got replies from some of them. Onislandtime might be back one of these days. I even spoke to Traveler.

Jerry DeNuncio answered a PM and told me that he's in the midst of a physical move.  He and his family are fine, just overwhelmed with the move. I just posted about my email exchanges with Jan Sand, he's just turned 90 and set up a new account over on Wordpress.    Brassawe is posting over on Wordpress as well.  Jenny and tr'ig are buying a house.

I think some people have just had it with the internet DJ.

They settle in awhile, read this, say that and then head off to 3D.

I think it's just the way it goes.
