I’d like to take a moment tonight to thank you. All of you. My existence in this little corner of the internet(s) has been, at particularly dark times, my only connection to the world outside my door.

To those of you who’ve been with me for a decade, stretching back to when I was just a chick in a cubicle with a lunatic boss and a a handful of stories up my sleeve; thank you … for having traveled this path with me, supported me in big and little ways, and becoming some of the people I cherish most in this weird wide world. (I’d name names, but doing so would take me all night. Suffice it to say, if you think you might be on that list, you ARE.)

To those of you who have come along recently and shared pieces of your own stories with me; thank you … each and every one of you has made an impact on me and often brought a little light into an otherwise dark day. Your comments and e-mails reaffirm my connection to the rest of the world. Of special note are the women who were once girls like Ash, who’ve seen something of themselves in her story and ours. That you have allowed me little windows into your lives and encouraged me along the way is a precious gift I did not expect to receive. I wish for and work for a better world, one that will ease your journey.

Lastly, a Tip Of The Hat to my friend Brad out in Kansas City, who built Laurustina for me and has kept it alive and kicking ever since. You’re a prince, my man. A freakin’ prince.

Happy New Year to all,

    Hey, Happy New Year. I appreciate you too. I’ve learned a lot by knowing you. I don’t take that for granted. Also, it’s unique considering ASCII characters have been our primary, but not only, method of communication. 🙂
