Dearest Diana, this post gives me instant sadness. You are a wonderful presence here and as you give no reason for this  Good-bye, it touches me deeply.

Don't go anywhere, stay with us, please, if you can!

God bless you, beautiful friend.
Love and hugs.
Margherita

Diana, I truly hope that you will reconsider leaving. You are a compelling presence, here at pip. You are loved, admired and respected by those who have come to know you through your moving poetry, your caring ways, your wisdom and your strength and inner (as well as outer ) beauty. My friendship will be with you wherever you go ~ whatever you do.

Sending lots of love your way,
Your friend,
Linda

Thank you dear friends, Margherita, Kacy, Linda and Karen.  I have sent you each an email to explain why I am leaving.  

I am happy to send an email explaining to any other friends to whom I haven't already written, why I am leaving.

Lots and lots of love and sad hugs.  I will miss you all.

Love

Thank you Oklahoma Rose and Roniece for your wonderful concern.  I have sent you both an email.

Dear, dear Alison, yes I did laugh at the frying your buttery buttocks - and all the rest of your email - and laughing felt good, as you knew it would - and I love you too, to little Aziza/Snowy Owl pieces. What will I do without YOU?

Love
Owl

I was so overwhelmed by the wonderful email responses (and the ones above) - the deep concern, the support, the reassurance, the wise advice, the humour, everything about them.  Every one of them was greatly appreciated.

On the strength of that and also the wonderfully wise advice and also some introspection, and, although I feel my hurt and anger at what happened was understandable - I have realised that I overreacted in running away.  I can't imagine not meeting with all of you in PIP as often as I can, nor reading and responding to your poetry, nor posting and enjoying your responses and responding to them.  It is bad enough when time prevents me from reading and responding as much as I would like, but to have my own perverse pride, hurt and anger, doing that, really is just plain silly. I can overcome what happened and smile again.

Thank you my kind wonderful Pipster friends.

Glad to have you here Owl.
Be wise and strong, an example for all of us.  You add such flavor and spice to the site, it would be lacking without your touch here.

Thank you, Roniece, for your kind words.  You are all a WONDERFUL bunch.  

Thank you, Margherita.  You are the epitome of love and kindness.

Thank you, ThisDiamond.  What a sweet thing to say!  I will try, as you ask, to be wise and strong and an example for all of you.  

Thank you, latearrival.  Thank you for being happy about this.
