The Smallest Minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities. - Ayn Rand
Darn, I just went to read her blog this afternoon.
That's too bad, she's a smart, thoughtful, and articulate lady.
I'm going to miss that ladies writing. She seemed to be spending a lot if time going over the past lately. I hope she didn't drag open tooo may old wounds.
Bye Lass, well miss you while your're gone.
There were 3 articles I'd meant to forward to various professional pilot friends of mine.
Shoulda done it last night, I guess.
From one of her final entries, it looked like a good friend had questioned whether she should be putting such private information into such a public space. Since she deleted the blog, I guess she decided that she shouldnt.
She mentioned a past relationship that describing as "bad" would be highly understating the case- maybe the ex found her?
She's a Fed. Can't she just shoot him?;)
Drat it all! I recently stumbled onto her blog, was reading prior posts, and put her on my list to read whenever I fire up the old(very old) computer. That woman can really put words together. She could do it for a living. She should be writing books! At least! This feels like a good friend/lover/relative etc, just left a note saying "I'm getting a sex change, turning vegan, converting to X(insert weird religion), giving my kid up for adoption, getting an abortion, having all my teeth pulled, shaving my head, getting a full body tattoo of PeeWee Herman does Vegas, and donating my billion$ inheritance to peta". Aaaaargh!!!!
I seem to recall this issue from a few years ago with respect to another blogger who had attracted a lot of attention and readers. It was pointed out then that the blog was mirrored on some Brit site that does that service.
Maybe this one has been mirrored, and some of the blog material can still be viewed there.
On Tamera's blog, Scully indicates her blog was hacked. I went to look, it sure looks that way. I hope she comes back, because the lady can write!!
I want you guys to know that you made me cry. . and I don't do that too easy.
I was considering shutting it down for some of the reasons you mentioned, though ex is on wife #3 or 4 I think so he's long forgetten me. . wife #1.
Everything else fine. . still same sex. . still red hair. dog still neutered. . . beer still cold.
I was trying to transfer it over to someplace safe when hackers/spammers took over. Between a good friend and a laptop we were able to save most if not all of it before it was completely hacked where I couldn't even go in there and delete comments the spammers left in there.
I was just sick to see it. . with my header. . with my book name idea. .
But it was enough to make me make that decision. I am going to start the book. It won't be quite so "personal" but hopefully it will invoke in readers some response to the good I see in life, in the sky.
The blogworld was funny. Mostly in that people made incredibly detailed judgements of my personality from simply some pages of words, or an email or two. Never having met me or talked with me or spent any time with me. What I write is the core of what I am. . but without the actual person. . it's a skewed thing. It might make me appear much better, more courageous than I am, or it might make me appear "self pitying" or "self centered"m words I heard from one detractor. I am some of those things at times. . I am not all of those things at all times.
In any event. If there's a post I still have that you want. . let me know.
Thanks for everything. . hopefully you'll see something by this time next year of the large, bookend, doorstop variety. I already have an editor and a professional aviation photographer that wants to team up.
