In two days' time - and I won't be here :( - I will have been on this forum for 365 days. I must tell you all that you are all fantabulous human beings, with diverse attitudes and backgrounds, but always focussed towards the common goal of preserving our magnificent natural heritage on this planet.

I have thoroughly enjoyed every moment and gained an incredible wealth of knowledge, such that every trip to a nature area is that much more enjoyable and fascinating. There is not one member that I have not enjoyed conversing with - and that is a stunning statistic! What forum can provide that?

My only wish is that I could have had more time to spend on the forum over the last year, but then it might be classified as a specialised addiction on the psychologist's DSM4 classification! :dance: However, there is no better addiction than harmonising with nature and melding with the congruencies of my fellow mites!

With home access to the net a couple of weeks away, my wish will come true - I will even be able to see how mites think in the daytime. When I joined, I rushed to find a name that was suitable. As a result, I didn't give it much thought - in fact, the concept OneWithNature permeated my frontal lobes and I acquiesced in the blink of an eye. Since then, I cannot wait to get on the forum and joust, jive, and generally jazz up my life on a daily basis.

I have a lot more to say on this thread, but for now I have to help the ill convalesce.

TO EVERYONE ON THIS FORUM THAT I HAVE HAD THE EXQUISITE PLEASURE AND PRIVILEGE TO INTERACT WITH OVER THE LAST YEAR, I WISH YOU ALL A WONDERFUL CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEAR, AND LOOK SERENELY AND SURREALLY FORWARD TO OUR CONVERSATIONS DURING 2010. THANK YOU TO YOU ALL - YOU TRULY ARE A SPECIAL FLOCK OF DIVINE BEINGS!
Regards,
OWN
(who always strives to be OneWithNature)

MeanderingMouse, it takes one to know one ... and that is no exaggeration! So many times I have strived to elevate my articulating skills, in-depth analysis and intuitive understanding of situations to your level. In many ways, I feel, you are a role model mite on this forum, and I always come away from reading your posts with a feeling of hope, inner warmth, and joy.
Thank you, MM, for everything to-date, and I look forward to many more years of interacting with you. Day and night. :wink:

Take care,
OWN.

P.S. What a magnificent pic to go with your beautiful words! :clap: :clap: :clap:
