I do hope you can forgive me as I disapoof now for a much needed break. I'm signing out from the default world, leaving it behind to head off to dustier pastures. To a grand event of excess and unfounded experiences.
To a world of pure imagination.

I'm much looking forward to kicking up some desert dust in my hair, and joining 60,000 of my closest friends for the powerfully transformative event.
I'm so very hungry for the dust, the fire, and the life experiences that await and allow us to continue as thriving humans.
I simply can't wait to tell you all about it.
For my beautiful friends joining me,
I'll see you in the dust.
For the rest of you fantastically amazing humans,
I'll see you when I return, completely renewed, refreshed, relaxed, and with the reset button fully engaged and switched to on.
I'll be a whole new Ringo,
a far better Ringo.
The best version of myself to date.
You won't even recognize me.
And now, I send my dusty hugs and bid you a fond farewell.
Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.
See you on the other side
