But I have absolutely been reminded that there are way too many people who I love and respect that I have been utterly failing to keep in touch with. I come here, we meet and reconnect. They give me affection and attention ... and then I ignore them for a year.
These are damn good people who have helped me, befriended me, and been willing to let me play my own game in my own space ... and be cool with that. I love them, and I really need to keep in touch with them.
And those of you who know me and have been telling me this can save your "DUH" comments. I got that ;-)
