|Seeker of Clarity|
I'm signing off SF for a while. I'm signing off all forums, but SF is the main one I've been living on.
There's an "opportunity cost" to every hour one spends on something, just like there's an opportunity cost to every dollar one spends. For me, I realized this week how much that cost is. It's too expensive for me at this point in my life.
There's no drama specific to the forum, and no problems here repelling me. I'm drawn somewhere else for all the right reasons. I was going to just move off, but I thought I owned a little explanation. I'm really not fishing for a multi-page farewell. I think I'd prefer not honestly. I just wanted to explain my absence. So many good people -- friends -- here, and I wish you all the very very best.

R0gue. I don’t know you but I know you. Whatever your odyassy is, God speed and return soon to your friends...

Understandable. I too have done this on occasion. Have a good respite and we look forward to seeing you in the future.

May you find the clarity you seek.
God and Para willing, we will be here should you return.
Good luck my friend.

See you when you get back.

"The Nazis entered this war under the rather childish delusion that they were going to bomb everyone else, and nobody was going to bomb them. At Rotterdam, London, Warsaw and half a hundred other places, they put their rather naive theory into operation. They sowed the wind, and now they are going to reap the whirlwind."

Enjoy your time away. We'll keep a porch light on for you .
You can run, but you cannot hide.

Almost five years ago I cancelled cable TV. Opportunity.
Eighteen months ago my electric stove tripped the main breaker. Hauled to the curb, not replaced. Opportunity.
Last week, mercilessly hammered by telemarketers, I changed my OGM and stopped answering my phone. Opportunity.
The more I relinquish, the more I gain.
Nothing else to add, just wishing to read you again.

Can we still email you on questions about watches?
Take care, friend.

Take care, friend.

Adios. If nothing else. your signature line something along like "The Pursuit of Less" has grown on me over the years and prepared me for this point in my life.
God be with you.
"It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us. We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life, and instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life – daily and hourly. Our answer must consist not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct. Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual." Viktor Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning, 1946.
I don't know your reason but I understand your written reasons.
Fare thee well, for now, r0gue.
I'm spending too much time on-line, myself, of late. But the weather's uncooperative for doing much else. Heck, didn't even get a good enough snow to go out and try some photography, yesterday. So... it's either this or read a book, I guess.

rOgue, in trying to meet your request for this not to evolve into a multi page thread I'll keep this simple, but wanted to say that you will be missed. I've appreciated some of your input.
Farewell and good luck with your ventures!
I'll second this.
Good luck in your hiatus.
This is the last post of this thread.
