The silver lining of this all, is that I emailed everyone in my gmail address books. 850 addresses. Many bounced, some were firstname.lastname@example.org and others were to (gasp) listservs that I’m on. But probably 600 or so were good. Maybe just 400. I’ve gotten some very nice emails in return with updates, good to hear from you’s, what’s going ons, and greetings.
Now I’m back in touch with a few people I haven’t talked to in ages. Nice. Off to get some reiki this afternoon. My back, of course, and who knows what else. I just had the strong feeling that I needed to go, so I’m following it.
