I guess that about says it all. Except “hasta la pasta,” which is how I often say “bye bye!”

I started this blog about six years ago (that’s about 60 years ago in cybertime). I’m thinking it’s time to retire.

We’ve laughed. We’ve cried (well, I have at times). We’ve formed bonds I never thought possible without meeting face-to-face. That’s because we shared from our hearts the things that were important to us.

This blog gave me a voice when I most needed it, when I had been silenced by a chronic illness and an oppressive marriage. It gave me a place to release my inner comic.

I’m in a different place now, metaphorically speaking, and I did move 3,000 miles west to the place I’d always dreamed of settling.

Hmmm. Where are all the vegan, gluten-free, sugar-free bakeries? And plaid is the the official uniform out here. I look dreadful in plaid! But I like the gloomy weather.

I’ve got so many new things in this new place to keep me busy, People!

Say hi to Almond and Hemp. I’m experimenting with vegan cows. That sounds dumb. I know cows are vegan. I’m trying to get them produce vegan milk.

Anyway, blogging was fun, but it’s time to move on. Don’t worry, you’ll find other bloggers to take my place. You probably already have.

I thought a lot about just disappearing without a word, but that’s not my style. I felt I owed you a goodbye. But I’m turning off comments because I don’t think I can handle your kindness AND keep my resolve to end this amazing adventure that we’ve been on together at this warm, wonderful place called Lorna’s Voice. Thank you for making me feel like my voice was worth listening to. Please remember that you (yes, I mean YOU) made a difference in my life!
