Dear Debbie,

I'm happy, but I'm sad. A paradox, at best, just like the Shakespeare quote, above. From Romeo & Juliet, I believe. Literary Lingo aside, the English Teacher in me wants there to be much, much more to this story; this journey; this adventure.

I want to thank you for your friendship. I want to thank you for showcasing The Scholastic Scribe at Blog Around the World more than once. I want to thank you for allowing me to make fun of both Sarah Palin & Barack Obama with your endorsement, and for encouraging me more recently at your place to Catch Potomac Fever.

Over the last 6 months, you've Shouted Me Out and Showcased Me on BATW. You've put up with my Sweet & sometimes Snarky comments. You've put the word out for one of us who is lost. You've helped more than one of us...including Your Humble Scribe...find a voice in this Crazy Cyberworld.

You said "farewell" to all your BATWers on Monday; I hope you didn't mean "goodbye." I would, instead, prefer to quote author Garrison Keillor, the man I believe to be our National Conscience, and just say So Long, for Now: "Be well, do good work, and keep in touch."

And thanks for everything,
Mrs. Scribe

The preceding entry is Mrs. Scribe's first February contribution to The Random Complexity Writing Challenge: 212 words.

I'm gonna miss BATW, but sure understand how overwhelming it can be for one person!
