Hiatus

Instead of everyone wondering where I've gone & what happened I figured I should tell you myself. I simply need a break, that's all. One little blog with my thoughts turned into a really big labor of love. 6 months worth of work and quite honestly, I'm burnt out so I'm taking a break.

Last weeks trolls prevented me from doing this then. I've seen enough of them to know, don't engage them and they go away. Please don't blame them for my hiatus because you'd be giving them far too much credibility & validity.

I may be back after a rest & if I am, you'll all be the first to know I can't thank you enough for reading & also allowing me the opportunity to get to know you. If you already have the email here then feel free to use it, knowing that I'll be checking it.

Take care of yourselves and please keep supporting one another. This blog may have kicked things off but what YOU have built is a strong amazing community that can continue without my prescience.

:(.. You will be missed.. and I sincerely hope that you will be back after a long wonderful rest, that you do deserve. YOU have helped this community become what it is besides us, for without you we wouldn't be anything.

Take care of yourself, Bobby.

This is sad news...I will miss you and your thoughts, for I check them daily.

Sometimes you have to do, what you have to do though.

I do hope you will be back.

Best of luck, and take care.

Take care, rest up, and you'll be in my thoughts until you're strong enough to come back. There's a Bobby-sized hole in my heart. I love you and thank you for all the work you've done for so long to share your life and thoughts with us.

I also wanted to THANK YOU! Yes, that's right you heard me correctly. THANK YOU for making this blog, and the work that you do, for without our common interest which is you, I wouldnt've met my best friend debwalsh aka Jinger, or Jules, or DNY, Or Eliza, or Hannala, or Amey, or Amy, or any of these beautiful people that have become my friends. We will still be here for when you decide if you decide to come back.

Best wishes to you Dear Bobby..

From the bottom to the top of my heart- I love you... You've been a dear friend, and even though I haven't been around as much either, you're still in my mind and heart.

Take all the time you need, and if you don't return, we'll ALL cherish the memories and good times we had here.

Thank you. for helping me to find my voice. I discovered your blog quite accidentally. And then frankly I was a bit nervous and frightened to find that Bobby had a voice outside of Rene and what I imagine in my mind.

My friends keep saying to me "But he's a fictional character" get over it.

Fictional or real - he knows my heart and soul. I've been going through some very difficult times these past months. Sometimes the daily entries were as if I had written them. Or as if a caring soul "knew". I wasn't so alone. I had a little more courage to examine myself and be truthful.

You are all such a close knit group that honestly I was a little afraid to leave a comment. Feeling I would be unwelcome.

But I saw your kindness with one another and well decided not to respond in my journal but to
"Bobby".

So I will miss your daily musings more than you know.
I certainly do appreciate your mindful thoughts and observations. This could not be anything other than a labor of love. I wish you a well deserved rest and all the best in life. You are so creatively talented, insightful and express yourself beautifully. Thank you - you will be missed.

I'm sorry I never saved the email - I always was afraid that might be an intrusion. I do hope you'll let us know once in a while that you are well and enjoying life.

Dear Bobby,

Again, take care.
Mucho hugs.

Oh Bobby, Bobby, I'm missing you already. You will be for ever in my heart and all my grateful thanks to you because without you I wouldn't have met so many wonderful people all over the world.

I've just posted happy Bobby pictures, because that's what mrsbg fell in love with. The twinkle in your eye... yeah I know what you lot are thinking, but honest, initially I only saw his eyes... well, then his hands.... hmmm.... the rest was a bonus.

Enjoy your well deserved rest

l'hitra'ot (until we see each other again)

lotsa luv hugs & xxxx's ann

When I heard that you were leaving my heart sank to the bottom of my chest. I know I wasn't that great and probably a nuisance. But I really enjoyed reading your blogs everyday, you're the reason why we all came here. I'm sorry to see you go Bobby and I dearly wish to see you back soon as I speak for myself I do love you and your blogs! :( Big Hugs to you my friend, Kara

just to say Thank you and Farewell.

After months as a lurker and occasional anonymous poster I was compelled to create an account just to offer my gratitude. Everyone has more or less summed up what I wanted to say so I wont repeat.

Thank you and TTFN (hopefully!)

Bobby, my sweet, now I feel like my mother died. I owe you EVERYTHING I've attained.

I also owe you a debt of gratitude for something much, much bigger and beautiful than you will ever know, that happened in my life because of you!!!

I love you!

If anyone deserves a break, you do. I discovered your blog in December, and also discovered a wonderful group of people. You are the first thing we knew we had in common. I will miss your insights and your thought-provoking comments. Enjoy your rest, and please please come back. In your own good time.
With love and respect, your friend Kathryn.

I hope you'll be back someday. I enjoyed reading your entries. But the most important thing: You've brought us together. I am *very* happy I've met such interesting people by accidently stumbling on your blog. Take care and Szczesc Boze!

I also want to express my gratitude.

You somehow managed to capture the essence of something we all loved and admired, and you gave us a place to connect to it, and to each other. I appreciate that you shared your intellect - your posts were always thought-provoking. I'm sure you spent many hours on this, and you deserve a break.

I'm also grateful for everyone that I've met through this experience. You all made me realize that I wasn't crazy.

You are very creative, and I believe that you have a unique gift. I know you'll find a way to express yourself - if not here, then somewhere.

I wish you all the best.
