Hello visitors, old friends, and new friends.
I am so sorry that I have not been around and that I've been neglecting all of my responsibilities here at deviantArt. I didn't think I could return, but I've had so many positivity coming from friends, through calls and notes, that I feel I can continue to be a deviant, just different.
You see, I lost my best friend, my lover, my love. I knew him for twelve years (he always asked me how I knew how long we've shared a special friendship, and I would always answer "women remember what is the most important"). I found deviantArt and showed him the site saying, "You need to be here. I'll join when I tie together the loose ends at my Yahoo group." That was June 4, 2004.
We did so many projects together over the years, including helping me with my The Sims Yahoo group, and running two dA groups, HumanConditions
. The Mad Hatters Society is still fairly new. I will continue with that group so go check it out and join if it's a place you like to be.
You know, he never forgot my birthday, he hated Valentine's and Christmas, but he'd surprise me with something that I wanted during a non-holiday month, and I did the same. We were together, than apart, then back together again. I thought for sure that we had at least another ten years, but I was wrong.
I miss him so much, and I always will.

So, with much friendship, encouragement, and support from all of you wonderful people out there, I will continue to be a deviant, but I will never be the person I once was. thefantasim
