    And the ghost town takes over.

    ... Each day, EP gets quieter and quieter. There are fewer new things to read. There's less stuff that merits a comment. And that day is approaching where you can justify ignoring me. Yup. I went there. I'm happy for you.... but that doesn't mean I've enjoyed the...

    Sad.

    Others don't see us as we see ourselves.  It can be a terribly lonely feeling when those we've grown to trust and appreciate insist on defining us as somebody we are not.   As much as I've grown to love EP, this can be a terribly lonely place.  AT times, I look...
