SEND TO A FRIEND:

    Three years ago I wrote about my circle

    as if it were a neighborhood. I asked everyone to post something on their status and I’d take that status and build it into a story about all of us. What I wrote began like this:“Like any community, EP has its brightly lit boulevards, its show-cased yards and...

    the worst goodbyes are the ones

    that are never said, and never explained. The person just vanishes for no reason and you never hear from them again, and that hurts, it really hurts, especially if you considered the person a close friend...

    It's an awful feeling to let go of someone in

    those last moments of being with one another. Two souls that part ways and journey in separate directions. They'll get by this time and the next. My Native ancestors never had a word for 'goodbye' because they had a much different world view than Europeans. The concept of...

    I'll say my goodbyes

    now instead of later. The good things in life never last forever and that's what makes them precious. Adios.

    Goodbye experience project.

    Without you I'd be dead. This place has been a comfort for me and I am tearful thinking all these memories are now gone. My stories are gone, who I am is gone but my memories remain. It's a feeling of comfort. I feel like crying but in a good way. I beg you experience project...

    I know I will see many of you at R2T, or Exp2 in the near future, so this is not good-bye. But we are experiencing an eviction of sorts—a forced evacuation—a relocation. And some of us are scattering. Moving is one of the top five medically recognized life stressors. It’s...
