I went to Paris for two weeks and had a lovely time as usual. I so love that magical city. That is the reason I have not been around here much until recently and it seems every time I sign on I am the only only one in the members online box. Also, as I view the discussions and other posts the dates of the last postings go back to April in some cases and here we are approaching the end of May. So I've begun to wonder, where did everyone go and why?
Could it be the result of the site's new upgrades and subcategories which I find tremendously confusing? Do you find this true also? Is that what is keeping you away? Or have you become board with each other or have you nothing to say, ponder, ask, post of your own creative endeavors?
It's like all of a sudden everyone has done inside their shell like turtles and won't come out to play. People who used to be here all the time, at least on and off. What's the matter, folks? I would really like to know? It's lonely here now. That's my lament. Why isn't this working anymore. Any thoughts???
Yes we are! Yes we are!! :)
Good to hear your writing away, that's wonderful news from a writer! ;) Glad you dropped in to say hello also. This site becomes more confusing but I like to reach out now and then!!!
Me too, terribly confusing! What were they thinking??? I totally agree with what you say...
I haven't been here much lately, either. It hasn't been because I've become bored, escept with the Anais Nin discussion which has gone so far afield that I think I will move on.
I've been trying to think of a good question to add to the discussion board. All of them seem to come out as yes or no questions and there's no discussion in that.
I think I'll look around a bit for a discussion I can contribute to. Maybe then I can talk with my online friends again.
Well, though this one is over, I see it sprouted some other lively discussions at last!! :) Whew! It was getting pretty dead around here!!
Cheryl, I've hardly even visited the forum since arriving back in the states. I've just not had much time. I know what you mean, though, about the continuing change that happens here at the site. I plan to check in as frequently as possible, and am reading some of the newer posts here, as well as some new additions to older posts.
One thing I've noticed for a long time now on this forum as well as others is that posts seem to come in cycles. Sometimes there are lulls, and sometimes a flurry of activity. I think everyone gets burned out on reading and posting at times - at least until they get away from it for a bit and sort of recharge the batteries, if you know what I mean, so they'll have something fresh to say when they come back.
Anyway, I'm back from time to time, and hope to see you around.
Tom, good to hear from you. You mentioned you would be away for some time from here as you were coming back to the states. Hope everything is going well for you. How do find things here now or do you miss England now? Mixed bag I suspect. :)
You're right, these things do go in cycles as there aren't enough of us to keep it going nor is there a focus that engages us all at all times. But I've grown fond of those I know, and wonder if they dropped out when I don't see them around for some time.
Thanks for stopping by.
