After long and careful consideration, I have come to the decision that it is time for Wolf Singer to move on.
There are many who will be happy at this news, I know, and that's okay. For those who may not be happy about this, however, you're more than welcome to visit my journal; you can even subscribe to it, if you'd like. You'll receive an email notification every time I post (which I do almost every day).
With regard to the Care2 Emergency Services group, please know that it will continue to operate as it has been from the start, including financially. I will be discussing the matter with the hosts so contributions can continue to be made and applied to members in true financial need. This is a very important group with a very important purpose, and as soon as proper arrangements can be made, the existing funds will be transferred to a new PayPal account (to be set up by whichever host takes over ownership of the group).
In the three years I've been a member of this site, I have watched many changes take place - some good, some not so good. Thanks to everyone I've met and interacted with here, I've been able to grow as a human being, and I've learned a lot about human nature and about how to live. I'm grateful for all of my experiences here - both positive and negative; without them, I wouldn't have learned the life lessons I needed to learn.
Until everything is taken care of, my profile page will remain visible. Once everything is done, however, I will be deleting my profile. So, if at some point you should find "Anonymous" beside my posts in groups where that option is not enabled, you'll know I've left.
I wish everyone happiness and wellness. It's been a real learning experience here on Care2, and I've appreciated being here. Take care, and thanks for taking the time to read this.
I am very sick. I woke up December 30th with a cold and a sore throat, and by New Year's Eve day, even though I didn't really talk (because my throat was sore), my voice was completely gone. I can type, but I can't talk. This means that if anyone calls to talk to me, I won't be able to respond - at least, not vocally.
I've been sucking back the Bengal Spice tea, NeoCitran, and Vitamin C (chewables, thankyouverymuch), and sleeping a lot. I'm hoping and praying that this virus (and a cold germ is a virus, in case you didn't know that) doesn't graduate to pneumonia. I really don't want to have to deal with the hallucinations pneumonia always seems to bring.
So, if you call during the day, you'll just have to leave a message on the answering machine. Or, you can email me, if you have my email address. Like I said, I can't talk with my mouth and vocal chords, but I can type. It's my head and chest that has the cold, not my fingers.
With regard to my groups, I'm afraid I'm going to have leave the bulk of the work to my wonderful Co-Hosts until I feel well enough to get back in to help out. I will be checking in off and on, but I don't know how much actual work I can get done; I'm really not feeling all that well...
While I'm offline, and as my health permits, I'll be working on a few ideas I've got on the back burner for the Blogline. The Blogline is for you, the community, so it needs to reflect that better than it has been. This new year is going to be a year of change, and one of the first things to change will be this blog.
Anyway, I just wanted you to know what's going on. If you don't see me around the boards a whole lot over the next little while, now you know why.
