"CliffClaven says goodbye" CliffClaven's Profile

When saying goodbye it is good to say why. Some people don't.

Old Cliffie joined VT in January 2000 and since then he has learned a lot and laughed a lot with the people here, most of whom are funny, informed and intelligent. He never attended any big VT meets. He doesn't work well in noisy groups and prefers quiet one-to-one meetings where two people can talk and share ideas. He met three VT members and enjoyed the time with each of them. But he was disappointed and saddened when someone whom he regarded as a friend went away without an explanation, without even a simple goodbye.

VT will go on but it is time for old Cliffie to move on from playing in the Virtual World to living in the Real World. He hopes that his former VT friends will keep travelling, keep dreaming…..and keep smiling.

      I celebrated my birthday in Brussels: not usually known as one of the world's party spots! But I had fun because I celebrated with my family. Thanks for the good wishes.
