Saying Farewell to Blogland and membership

Good evening my dear lovely friends it is with much dismay that I bid you farewell. My time must come to an end for reasons that should be obvious. My future and well being must be considered in moving forward. Many out there in the real world would look upon us bloggers as being kinky, un-natural or inappropriate according to their standards. But truth is I've revealed too much information in these here blog posts. Using my pain, wisdom and lessons should not be abused or misused by individuals that may wish to discredit me in the future.

With the help from many of my closest compadres I've decided to shut down my blog and my profile. I'll leave up this message for a bit of time before closing down completely. Saying good bye is never easy especially to those who have held me in their prayers and sent so much love my way over these past 10 months. I so wished to make it till my year anniversary but feel it is time.

Know that I am in very capable loving care. My man is a rock and he has given me so much strength to draw upon. Not only am I in love, I have commitment and marriage in my future. This may seem sudden to most of you, my intuition sends me different signals. This man is my heart and soul, my reflection, my keeper of all that is good and beautiful between connection so deep. How many of us trick ourselves into believing that each new mate could be our future only to the disillusionment of time and truth. There is no presence of doubt, no red flags and certainly no hidden secrets between us, I have found my intimate best friend and I will not live without him from this day forward.

Somethings you just know....

Our sailboat is still in the works, not the original one we wanted but a beauty just the same. She will take work and love to refurbish her grace and presence. This is so significant of the love between my man and me. All of us tired, old, pale and dormant. We will restore her luster, the Majesty to her purpose and with that process soothe our longings to share the transformation that will emerge from taking her and us into a life we cherish and hold sacred. Our journey awaits us and with the good grace of God we will find more than we bargained for....we will find eternity.

For those wishing to stay in touch I think you know how to reach me if not contact me and I'll give you a direct route. Please play nice with each other, I might pop in to read blogs from a different handle or perhaps google to stay in touch. I will miss you all terribly but still feel this is necessary for attaining future positive results.

I will hold you in my heart and love you forever....

In spirit and freedom,

TM & companion,

My sympathies for the pain you've gone through of late.

My congratulations on finding the love and compassion you currently enjoy.

The man who has brought new sparkles and twinkles to your eyes had better damned well take good care of you, or he'll have to answer to the rest of us!

Cheers and best wishes, TM.

Please stay in touch.

LOL...I'm not so sure my guy is shakin in his boots but he does know what he has with me. He is by far the most generous loving man I've ever known and every ounce of him cares for every spec of me with dignity and honor. What more could a girl ask for? Absolutely NOTHING!!!!!

Thank you for checking in on me!

Thank you my friend for all you have shared with us, and for raising the bar -- you've set a very high standard, and this corner of the e-world is better for it.

Sorry we never got to play tennis, but I hope that may still happen --in the fullness of time.

Smooth sailing Skipper and Mate,

I will not express sorrow at your leaving, but joy... You came here in search of something, and I believe that you have found it. That makes me happy for you. It was good to know you for this brief moment in time. Tight sheets and sheltered ports to you...

If you ever want to

Madness takes its toll. Exact change please!

You are one of the jewels and finest writers on here..and I feel a friendship with you and appreciate so much your words of wisdom and have really enjoyed your journey here.

Dear TM, I am a bit shocked that you have been advised to shut down your blog due to your relationship, and I understand that you no longer need a "public" profile and membership, but I am happy that you have had trusted friends and advisers that I hope look out for your interests and not for some hidden agenda or vested interest of theirs, but perhaps I am just more wary of people than I used to be!! I can see the sense in doing this though, given the fate of some "public" relationships on this site in the past!

Even though I haven't met you or chatted with you, I am still really happy for you though and can't think of a nicer and more deserving person for this to be happening to, but I want you to guard a little bit of your precious and dear heart for me, just to tell me you are OK and will be OK, whatever happens???
