Hibernation

Today I stumbled upon this quote:
"It's weird ... you know the end of something great is coming, but you want to hold on, just for one more second ... just so it can hurt a little more."

I am writing this post with that bit of pain. This might not be the end, no one can know that for sure, but it certainly will be a break.
I'm standing here - well, actually I'm sitting in a rather comfy chair with a cat snoring behind me - to represent all of the wonderful people who were part of this blog as authors. This is not a speech at the Academy Awards, so I'll refrain from thanking everyone individually.
I bet you know yourself how it goes sometimes ... life gets in the way and there comes a point when you just have to take a time-out, go into hibernation, call it what you will.

We won't disappear from the surface of the Earth, though. How about coming over to our forum and meet us there?
And who knows, maybe some day when life has calmed down, we might be back here as well.

I don't just want to thank our authors of course, but also you, our readers. It was nice to have you here and we hope you'll keep us in good memory.
Okay, the sheets are on the furniture to keep it from getting dusty, the windows are closed, the oven and the coffee machine are plugged out for now. Time to turn off the light and lock the door.

Goodbye and have a great time ... wherever you are.

I like your thinking Cat, that this is just a pause, a hibernation. You know those bears, they come stumbling out of their caves and just devour everyhting they can... and perhaps we'll come back with a bang, just raring to go! I have very much appreciated and enjoyed all of your wonderful posts, along with all the other authors' posts in this blog that I've read since I've come aboard. See ya later, alligator! :)

Kudos to all of our bloggers. They put a lot of work into the blog.

Hopefully, we'll revive it down the road.

Beautifully said, Cat.

Perhaps we can think of this not so much as an ending, but as a time to reflect. The day may come when it feels right to return refreshed and rejuvenated.

A HUGE thank you to all of the people who volunteered their time and effort by contributing the wonderful blog posts that made this blog special these past few years.

Saying "so long", but not "goodbye".

Very well written. Makes me a bit sad. Hasta la vista.
