I'm going to be leaving OT soon. I've been considering it for awhile. OT really can't be apart of the new life I'm moving towards because it's been so much apart of the old life that I'm leaving behind. Most members of Asylum are aware of where I've been. You know a lot more about me than most people. I have goals and things I'd like to experience. I can't do them if I don't take small steps and sacrifice the security blankets I've clung to during the fallout. OT has been my substitute for living when living wasn't an option for me. I've been here at OT from the very beginning. From the moment OT existed, I was here. I was apart of the automotive community long before back in 1996,-- 1999 when I heard about the split. It's been a long time for me, and this is not a simple decision! I now have an opportunity to really live, so I must get going. There is a lot of things and people waiting for me. It has been a hard decision for me to make. Thank you so much for inviting me into your lives, and for keeping me company through some pretty tough times. Thanks for listening to me, and for giving me insight, wisdom, laughs, and helping me understand that living really *is* simple, but it's not always easy. I'll be gone by the time any of you read this, but I'll check my PM box if questions arise. While all of you have been wonderful, and gracious -- there are specific people who have helped me in making my current decision. Neither of you know how you've helped, but here goes: Peyomp, thank you for being you. I never appreciated you until I finally understood you. It is unfortunate we had differences at one point or another, but as you see it - I see it, it's water under the bridge, and now is all that counts, so thank, and Johan, thank you for being candid and honest with me when I'd ask questions, or talked about my life. Often I didn't like hearing what you had to say, but damnit you were right then, and you're still right now. These truths are self-evident, and I'm glad I could pass on some of what I learned from you both to others. Those of you who I haven't mentioned -- you're all there. Ryebread, Throwdown, Dave, Designer, -- tons of others. I remember all of your names, and I'll keep you in my prayers. Please, if anyone ever needs me -- don't be afraid to contact me on AIM: MB58SC.
