On Saying Goodbye...

As AOL begins to close down it's bloggs, my heart is heavy. I am saddened by this turn in events because I feel as if I am losing part of my family. A vital and truly the strongest part of who I am and have become. Without you my dear family in J Land, I would have given up writing and never come back to it. But with your love, encouragement, inspiration and gentle nudges I have found my true voice.

I love each and everyone of you. When I first starTed posting I truly never meant for anything I had to say to be public. By mistake my journal ended up public and thank God it did! Without that little mistake I would have never met Kim. In her strength, I found my own. I miss her everyday. But I know she is still with us as I feel her vitality and hunger for life burn inside my own heart everyday.

I am conflicted as what to do with my journal. I am still a bit torn and so I ask this of all of dear family here in J Land... Would it be easier to stay in touch with all of you if I move things over to Blogger? If so then I will do just that. The very thought of losing any of you breaks my heart.

On a last note I will say that you can keep up with me through email and through
www.fightpink.org . A great woman named Stacey has started this organization and I hope to continue to be involved with her by writing for this site time to time.

Take care my dear ones. I love you.


  1. I saved the addy to your MYSpace hon. As for moving to Blogger...that's really your choice. I would follow you anywhere. Of course I have your email and snail mail as well to keep in touch. I truly believe your story is one that world should hear. You've already started that process the the Pink.org and your MySpace page. The question is do you want to continue to share that story with even more people? Not so many will be willing to go the MySpace route to read. However with another journal they might. I've seen what you've done with your MySpace page. Blogger works in a very similiar light. You'd be able to make it your own even more than you ever could with the AOL journal. Again...in the end it's your choice dear friend. If you do decide to do another journal, give me a shout out, I have a couple people who would follow you. No matter what dear friend, I'm not going anywhere. I love you way too much to disappear. (Hugs)Indigo
