It was the best of times, it was the worst of times; it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness; it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity; it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness; it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair; we had everything before us, we had nothing before us; we were all going directly to Heaven, we were all going the other way…


One year has passed and it seems the time to let this document drift off into electronic oblivion as an archive of life on Earth, somewhere, early 21st century.

Signing off at 44…

  1. Thank you News Editor for this amazing gift you gave us – we laughed, cried, raged, shared, got sweet, got ugly, but at the end of the day, in one way or another – at least we communicated.
    Heres to a future forest, peace, light and friendship.
    Thank you from our hearts.
    The MW family

  2. Yes, I agree with Gina on this one.

    Thank you so much newseditor for allowing some communication of the frustrations in this community to be seen.

    May peace prevail, may honesty prevail.
    I extend love and compassion for all who have contributed.

    I live in hope and faith that we will all be able to live here as a strong community, even though this is not evident right now.

    I truly believe there is good in everyone, and this is what keeps me going.

    May our gardens grow, may our people live in peace and safety, may our children live full and happy lives, may our grandchildren thank us for what we have achieved here.

    May love prevail above all else.
