that they missed me, and to those who didnt say so, but maybe didanyway........i apologise for the very very very long absence........i should havebeen in touch sooner, stayed in touch, been a better person, and y'know..........i went to russia for 10 days around new yearsm came home home with themost godawful flu i've evr had. i was sick for a month and lost 10 lbs.that was the good part. my throat was so sore i couldnt speak, let alone swallow anything but ice cream..(another good part...) i had tokeep rescheduling my eye operation because i was so germy for so longit would have been unwise to so anything invasive until i was 100per cent.......that bring us to the end of february when i finallygot this humungus cateract taken off and something lazered in thatallowed me to see w'out glasses or contacts for the first time sincei was 4 years old. AMAZING! it was like someone put their hand on myforward and said "heal!" and i was able tothrow away my crutches andsee again!,,,well almost. i am half blind in the other eye--(noperipkeral vision dus to an accident some time back).....but still, ican actually see what the world looks like for the first time in mylife...2 weeks later---around march 4th, i left for africa and travelledthroughout the continent to places i had never been before----morocco,mali, timbucktoo, ethiopia......all wonderful in terms of historyand culture, but heartbreaking because so many peoples are so poor,so desperate, starving, hopeless.....returned on march 25th --exhausted, but determined to a way to be useful and helpful to others instead of wasteful and 'all about me'...one thing i was/am afraid of----and that's how obsessive i'd been aboutthe boards, and knew/know i have to change my behavior..ie: stopletting the boards run my life and start doing vice-versa. i received a lovely note from ken, which made me realise that i can dothis--ie stay in contact with you-all, my long-term board buddies,w'out going off the deep end and spending my entire life (a slightover-statement) at the computer trying to garner affirmation and affection from one and all on too many boards in too many places andtaking up too much of my time and attention when i should really bedoing other stuff i would constantly tell meself i'd do later, but neverquite got around to.so, i'm back-if you'll have me--and ready to devote time, attention, and affection, to you and our board...........never mind the others.and it's spring! and it's april! and it's good to be back....and ihope you agree and even if you dont, it's still 'springtime is my time,is your time, is our time, is love time and spring time and viva sweet love..."yours,sasha
