TIME FOR GOODBYES
“Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened.” - Dr. Seuss
The days of Yahoo are numbered. Every time I log in, I get the message that the countdown is nearing time zero when it will be shut down. It’s sad, as it was here that I became part of a virtual community where I met some wonderful people and had some great conversations. I exercised my mind, I was moved, I was entertained, laughed, shed a tear or two, made a few good friends. Time passes, alters everything, changes us. Nothing stays the same, nothings is so good it lasts forever. All this that we had at Yahoo was a special moment in time and our memories are made of such moments. We enjoyed it while it lasted, now we move on.
Some of my friends from Yahoo have already migrated there, I hope to see you there too. I dedicate this song to all my friends and acquaintances here at Yahoo 360. It’s been great!

Time, Flowing like a river, Time, Beckoning me. Who knows when we shall meet again, if ever But time, keeps flowing like a river, to the sea. Goodbye my love, maybe for forever. Goodbye my love, the tide waits for me. Who knows when we shall meet again, if ever.
But time, keeps flowing like a river... On and on, to the sea, to the sea... Till its gone forever Gone forever Gone forever Ah, forever!
Goodbye my friend, maybe for forever? Goodbye my friend, Who knows when we shall meet again. The stars wait for me. Who knows when we shall meet again, if ever. But time, keeps flowing like a river To the sea, to the sea Till its gone forever Gone forever Gone forever Ah! Forever more! Forever more! Forever more!
I have been blogging daily on this platform for several years now. It is surprising that I have persisted as the world is changing and "microblogging" is now the norm. I blog to amuse myself, make comment on current affairs, externalise some of my creativity, keep notes on things that interest me, learn something new and to surprise myself with things that I discover about this wonderful, and sometimes crazy, world we live in.
I sometimes get the impression that I am on a soapbox delivering a monologue, so your comments are welcome.
