    For an as of yet undecided amount of time I'll be away from the forums. Suffice to say more than just a few hours or couple of days.

    "But everyone else is just now coming back!" you declare. "Why fade into the background now?"

    Let's leave it at this: I've had a few "light bulb goes ON" moments these last couple of weeks. (No dirty joke intended there.) Need to step away and get perspective.

    Sorry for the enigmatic and vague nature of that, but such is Life.
    (Also, sorry for displaying the youthful and naive egotism of assuming people care enough that I should post a thread rather than just PM those select few I regularly interact with.)

    I was here, but now I'm gone.
    I leave my name to turn you on...

    Signed,

    10_3XL

    Your decision mate and I hope whatever it is you feel you need to find that you find.

    I think that you are right to have posted a thread - some people may not have directly interacted with you but I'm sure (and hope) that your posts have been read by them.
    Maybe not understood but read :rolleyes:

    Fade into the background - but don't disappear permanently, with all these newbies there may be a need to re-form the 'Post Police' and I can't do it all on my own.

    Go forth & prosper Grasshopper :)

    Oh - almost forgot to put this up, too! Other than leaving my name I figured that I would leave this, too, to help ease the concerns of those who are... well... concerned. Also a sort-of-parting gift. Put a face to the name. :p

    AND ON THAT NOTE: I AM OUT

    My friend 10_3XL... I have been moving in your diretition for over a month now. I'm going to join you. There's no draw for me on here anymore except the PM conversations I have. I have been intentionally stopping in a couple of times a day just to look around. I may post a one liner or a like here and there, just so I can "keep my hand in. I am going to give you my personal email address via PM. There a couple of people who matter to me on this forum. I will keep in touch with them as best I can on the conversations side. I am: As I Am.jpg

    Gotta do what ya gotta do. I was off this weekend from here, and the internet due to line failure. I just get on here during lunch and sometimes while I'm watching TV.

    Two of my favorite people here. Your insight and wisdom were sppreciated.

    Your playfulness was most welcome. I adore you both.

    It saddens me that you are both leaving. Truly it does. You both have brought so much to this community.

    For me the loss is much more personal. I had the privilege of calling both of you remarkable men....friend.

    I will miss you both.

    Sorry to see you go (or virtually go) oldkid & hope that you find the parting not too much such sweet sorrow.
    Have enjoyed out little verbal jousts from time to time, entered into in the best of spirits.
    Enjoy whatever it is you are going to spend your time doing - and may you have the energy to do it.

    Just a 'parting shot', to hopefully make you smile:- I have been moving in your diretition ;)

    Best wishes.

    Yeah. This sucks. Both of you are good for this place. It needs people to keep it going. Active people especially.
    I've been on the fence a few times about leaving. The thing that gets me is the people who just drop off the forum without any notice. One day here the next day gone. Certain ones more than others. You would think being online with strangers wouldn't matter but here it seems like we get to know each other pretty good.
    Take care and stop back by. I'm sure we'll be around fellas.

    It could be. 10_3 is into Daniel Danger's artwork. I'm a huge fan of art myself and after he mentioned DD art the other day I looked it up. I thought this particular piece was fitting for 10_3
