Default Re: Fixing what is broken, healing the damage, learning and moving on. Long live AVAL

You know how life is when moving day comes? All that angst at having to pack up, sort through stuff and then having to move it all to the next place. Indeed a train wreck took place and anything anyone can pretty much say at this point is hindsight.

However, there are now 3 new forums. All of them look inviting for different reasons. Some of us are already developing stretch marks just floating from one forum to the next working on keeping our connections to those who have touched our lives.

There was bound to be upset that this forum is closing its doors because folks are comfortable here. Moving is way up there on the stress scale and Avalon has kind of been like one's living room. And now the furniture is being moved and packed up.

A new site is not such a bad thing. New friends await along with old ones. There are new directions and visions to explore. And each of the new forums also has something old (friends) and something new (visions) for all who are a part of them.

I already am experiencing the energy draining away from Avalon as members find their way to the other forums throughout this transition.

I'm very happy for having met everyone here and all the knowledge collectively each has shared. Avalon is not broken it has just undergone a transformation. Just as the caterpillar spins its chrysalis, once it undergoes metamorphosis it then sheds it protective coating by climbing out, dries its wings, and takes wing. Only now there is a new type of freedom. The freedom to choose, the freedom to share and the freedom to hold onto that, which is dear to the heart. So take a breath fellow Avalonians... this time when we all jump off that cliff, we fly.
Aloha, thank you, do jeh, toda, arigato, merci, grazie, salamat po, gracias, tack, sukria, danke schoen, kiitos, dank u, mahalo nui loa
