Time To Shut Up, But...

One of the hardest things for me has always been to just shut up and respect someone's wishes, when my own selfishness would otherwise lead me to try and talk someone out of a decision.

But I fully understand that if you truly respect and admire someone, you honor their decision. Someone I respect immensely made a decision that has, and will, made me very sad tonight. It just kinda stinks because I will miss her, her work, her words, her intelligent writing, and her truly inspiration that life really can be good.

Meta, I'll miss your blog. I'm sorry the bad guys got to you, and I won't question your personal decision. Just know that it's leaving a hole in my days that won't be filled. Good luck, and I wish you so much happiness. If anyone deserves it, it's you. You are a class act, truly a Lady, and someone who's very high on my "to be admired" list.

Take care, ok? Thanks for the times you shared with a whole lot of us.


  1. Well said. I was sad to see the "Goodbye" post on GTEP and was hoping it was all a big joke. Meta, you are none of those things that big meanie said about you - you are a class act, like Jimmy said.

    If only they made BandAids for the human soul.

  2. I was sad too. I sent her an email telling her some similar sentiments. She will be greatly missed.

  3. I am right there with you. Did I miss something? What happened? I understand if she didn't want to have her blog anymore--but did something bad happen? I got a very short e-mail from her...it seemed very odd! :(


I love comments. I won't lie about that!
