Suspended

I know this will come as an unexpected announcement and a shock, but I am having to suspend this blog until further notice, due to a bereavement in close family. I'll email the group with further details. I do not know when or if I'll be resuming this journal.

I am also going to turn off alerts by the end of today, again with the same proviso - I do not know if I'll be able to return to J-land.

As the eventual answer could well be negative, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all for welcoming me into a wonderful community.

The Call for Support journal will remain available.

All the best,

Guido

    Dearest Guido -- I do hope that your journaling is on suspension, and not full closure, for my own personal enjoyment of your blogs, and also as I believe you enjoy them.  Heck, your one blog is a bit of a public service, really.  However, obviously you must do what it is you must do, for your own sake and the priorities you have now in your life.  

    My deep condolences, Guido.  I'm so sorry to hear of your loss, and I do hope that you get to where it is you need to be, when you need to be there by.  You have my e-mail / IM.  God be with you all, and, peace.  -- Robin

  33. Guido, I am thinking of you at this very sad time.  You must know how much you'll be missed by the comments so far from your friends in J-Land but of course your family must come first.
    Hopefully one day soon you'll feel like coming back to your other 'family' here in J-Land.
    Love and prayers,
