    I just have to express some feelings this morning. It's the first day of June. I'll be a year older in a few more days. In another month or so, I'll be leaving my hometown area and returning to Jacksonville, Florida. This will be a big change, and I may no longer have time to write for HubPages. I don't plan to delete my account, however, but just put it "On Vacation," at least for awhile to see how things go with my undoubtedly busier life.

    I have to admit that I will miss checking HubPages every day for broken links, comments, and to see what may be of interest to read. I'll also miss helping others with their writing, but life moves on.

    I'm grateful to all my fellow writers who have given kind comments and inspired me over the years. So, while it not officially "good-bye" for a month, this is how I'm feeling on this first day of June.

      Good luck and sorry to hear you leaving HubPages. Hope it is only a temporary situation. As someone who has benefitted greatly from your help over the years, you will be sorely missed. Take care.

    If I don't run into you in Hubberville before you leave, God's speed and many blessings as your life transitions. Take good care, Marie.

    Barack, Bev, John, Sally, Jack, "Dr. Granny," and Jan, I thank all of you for taking the time to read my post. It is a somewhat exciting, bittersweet time.

    My Internet will actually be disconnected on June 21st, Father's Day and the 2nd day of summer. So, my time here will decline before I actually leave for Florida. This is good in the sense that I will have more time to focus on packing.

    Perhaps I will try to read and comment on at least one article of all the people I'm following before then--now THAT would be a challenge, wouldn't it? Too bad HubPages doesn't give some sort award for that, if I succeed.

    I'm also working on a special article based on the oldest Grimm's Fairy Tales book in existence that I know. It had belonged to my father. The binding on it is sewn--yes, sewn--that's how old it is. It's strange the pages haven't disintegrated yet. Hopefully, I'll be able to post the article before the ISP disconnection date.

    Again, thank all you for taking the time to read and respond to my forum post. God bless all of you!

    I will miss you, Marie, and I hope you come back from time to time while you are on vacation to say "hello." Thanks for all your positive and kind support through the years, it's been enjoyable and reassuring.

      Thank you, Kenna. I don't know what's going to happen exactly, but writing has never given me a living wage, so it's going to be something salaried to meet the high demand of rent. It's the only practical thing to do.

    Good luck with your move.  Hope everything works out well.

      Thank you, CM. I'm not feeling terribly excited about it at the moment. The morning greeted me with the sweet scent of cut grass. I won't have that where I'm going.

    I hope everything works out well for you. Hopefully, once life has settled down a little, you might find time to drop into HubPages.

      Maybe, Eurofile. I'll have to establish some sort of routine, which may take a few months. Thank you for wishing me well.
